Marilyn's story

Marilyn lives with her husband and four children. Two are working abroad; one is married; and one is still studying. She is hard working and always maintains a good attitude while doing her daily routine. Her husband is a driver of a tanker and a mechanic. Gained income from her business goes to their daily commodities and the education of her youngest child. Marilyn manages a school canteen wherein she offers different kinds of groceries and some native cakes. She has been doing this kind of business for one year. Marilyn would like to purchase more stocks of snack foods, soft drinks, instant cup noodles, candies and glutinous rice for her food stall business. For these reason, she is requesting additional capital of 10,000 PHP (Philippines pesos). She hopes to get this amount of loan so she could improve her sales and profit, which will serve to let her youngest child finish her studies and secure the future of her family.
