Patience and determination has been Myrna's guiding principle in life. She is from the local community of Cordon, married, and has been blessed with three grown up children. Myrna's husband is a farmer while she operates a general store within their locality.

She has run a general store for over 10 years. Aside from retailing, she also engages in a livestock raising business. She is grateful because her previous loan has helped her much in the improvement of her income and with the businesses she has.

This time Myrna is seeking another loan for additional capital amounting to PHP 7,000, which will be used to buy grocery items and four bags of hog feed. She knows that having a complete set of grocery items to offer will enable her to gradually achieve her goals in life.
