Myla is from the village of Alimanao. She is 30 years old, married, and has an infant. To make a living, Myla and her spouse manage a small water refilling service in their village. The couple obtains about PHP 5,000 monthly from their business.

She is now taking out a loan of PHP 30,000 to maintain and buy plastic gallons to use in their water refilling service. She would like to keep generating good profits from their business and save money for her child's education.
