Marilou is 52 years old and blessed with two children. She lives with her family in a village and generates her income through vegetable production and sales. She earns about PHP250 each week doing this type of business. She aims to earn more income to provide for her family's needs sufficiently and to save for the future of her children.

At this time, she has planted more vegetables expecting to increase her production next season, but due to inadequate capital, she is asking for a loan of PHP25,000 to buy seeds and fertilizers to sustain her vegetable production. She believes that the loan will help her increase her yield.
