Being single at the age of 46 did not hinder Marialyn to improve her way of living. She has been engaged in the selling of meat in the local market for the past 10 years. She usually generates a net income of PHP1,500 a day in this activity.
Wanting to improve her business and save for her future, Marialyn is requesting a loan amount of PHP50,000. She intends to utilize the amount for purchasing more chicken, meat, and pork to sell. With that she is positive that her income will increase. She is praying that her loan request will be approved.
