Marilyn lives peacefully, at Linao East, with her spouse and two children. Her spouse is a tricycle driver, and he provides transport services daily. Marilyn sells fish to the people in her village. From their businesses, the couple earns about PHP15,000 monthly. The income goes for their meals, bills at home and school fees for their children.

Marilyn hopes to increase sales, but she has insufficient funds of her own now. That is why she is asking for a loan of PHP25,000 -- to buy more milkfish, shrimp, crabs and mudfish to resell. Someday, with good income, she will be able to educate her children well.
