Marissa's husband operates their jeepney from their village to the town proper. Sometimes their jeepney is used as a service, especially during harvest season--it brings their harvest from their farm to their house. Some farmers also rent their jeep during harvest season.
In addition to operating their jeepney, Marissa wants to start a small village store for additional income. She is requesting a loan of PHP 5,000.00 to pursue her plan. This is also her way of assisting her husband to meet the growing needs of their family. She is glad that they also have their farm as a source of income twice a year.
