Myrna is 33 years old and has been married to Tito for almost 11 years. The couple has one child who is in college. To meet the family's daily needs, Myrna has established a small store in which she sells grocery items to the people in her neighborhood. According to her, minimal profits earned were just enough to buy food for daily meals and to provide allowances for her child. She is thankful that, despite many competitors in the retail business, she can still acquire sales and earn good profits.

With her current situation in the business, she aspires to make improvements and to provide for all of the needs of her customers. She is asking for additional capital, because she had insufficient funds to buy canned goods, soft drinks, detergents, and eggs to sell. She is now asking for 25,000 PHP.

Through the help of this loan and her patience and determination to succeed, Myrna will alleviate her family's poor living conditions.
