Rose Eden
Rose Eden D. is a 44 year-old vegetable vendor. Her excellent performance in ASHI in terms of repayment and business all throughout her membership made her one of the most outstanding member. Despite the financial struggle she had in all of her life since birth and during marriage especially on raising her 11 children whose age range is from six to 25 years old, she had manage to remain strong and happy. Her loving husband who is a driver has been so supportive to her especially on her desire for requesting bigger amount of loan. As agreed by both of them, Rose Eden is now requesting for a much bigger amount of loan which will be used for buying a new motorcycle intended for a tricycle (motorcycle with sidecar) for hire business to be managed by her husband. This is to replace their old second hand motorcycle which was bought more than five years ago.

Tricycle is one of the most common means of transportation people in the municipality take in going to different villages and neighboring municipalities.

Though at some point of her life, Rose Eden is so disappointed because three of her elder children had decided to stop schooling yet she never loses hope that the rest of them aside from her disabled child will be pursuing their education. She hoped that through her continues loaning, she will be able to grow her business to be able to sustain the education of their children and improve their standard of living.
