Marilyn is married with four children. She sells fruit and vegetables to the people in her community. She is a happy, very generous and very humble person in the community, so villagers also reciprocate as they do business with her. She is asking for a loan of PHP 10,000 to buy a variety of fruit and vegetables to sell in their small store. She hopes to have more income to provide for the needs of her family. Someday, their living will be improved by her loan and hard work.
