Marilyn, 43 years old, is married and has three children, one in college and two in high school. Marilyn and her spouse generate about PHP 10,000 each harvest season (twice a year) from their farming business. They also raise hogs to fatten and breed as an additional source of income.

Marilyn needs to improve her businesses so she is asking for a loan of PHP 18,000 to buy urea (fertilizer) and three liters of insecticides and pesticides. In the future, Marilyn would like to achieve a plentiful harvest every season to pay matriculation fees and to save up for times of emergency.
