Marilyn is 52 years old and is married to Armando T.. They live in the village of Minallo Naguillan, Isabela. They are blessed with 4 children who have all graduated from high school. None of them pursued studies in college because they could not afford the cost.

Marilyn has been selling vegetables for many years. Since she does not have enough capital to grow her business on her own, Marilyn is asking for the support of ASKI. She wants to borrow PHP 7,000 to help expand her business. She also admits that her weekly income from her vending is not enough to support her family's needs and she is hoping to increase her capital to generate an income that can fully support her family.
