Christy is a diligent mother and wife who is engaged in buying and selling fruit and vegetables in the market. She is 42 years old and has only one child. She and her husband aim to become successful and financially stable in order to have a better future. Her willingness to strengthen her business made her decide to borrow a loan of P5,000 to buy more vegetables such as eggplants, potatoes, bitter melon, 'pechay', green pepper, cabbage, garlic and onions to sell.
