Jovalyn is 31 years old, married, and thankful for having one child. Her family is her motivational guide, and she works hard to give them a better quality of life by doing something that brings additional income and that will allow her to support her child's needs. She has had a retail store based in their home for two years. The daily net profit of 300 PHP is just enough to cover the cost of the family's daily meals.

Thus, she is thankful for having other sources of income aside from retailing: she has also raised pigs for three years. To improve her income in the store, Jovalyn is requesting a loan of PHP 10,000 to purchase additional stock of items such as biscuits, soft drinks, cooking oil, sugar and other ingredients. She will also buy feed and vaccine for her pigs. Jovalyn says the loan will be very helpful in the success of her businesses.
