Jerilyn C. is a 28-year-old mother of two. Her husband drives a "tricycle" -- a motorcycle with sidecar that's operated as a taxi. One of her children is in elementary school, and the other is in high school.

Jerilyn plans to use the money from this loan to pay off another loan, taken out to buy her husband's tricycle. She also plans to buy a pumpboat, or motorized outrigger canoe, for her brother. Jerilyn and her brother work together to catch and sell fish -- he fishes, and she sells them. Her brother will use the pumpboat to transport fish and other items.

By paying off her husband's tricycle loan early, Jerilyn will save her family money. She hopes the pumpboat will bring her and brother extra income. Jerilyn's dream is to earn enough money to be able to send both of her children to college.
