Her previous loan of PHP 5,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 9,700, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 10th loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000, so that she could continue sustaining the operations of the rice mill - buy fuel, have enough funds to pay the laborers in the mill, etc. and she also wants to use part of her loan to purchase additional stock for the general store so that she can continue to save up for the future and for the education of her children.
