Evangeline lives serenely in her small home in Estefania with her spouse and one of her four children. To supplement her husband’s farming income, she sells rice to the people in her village. From the contents of a sack of rice, she usually gets 500 PHP in profit. This income goes toward the family’s meals and school expenses.

Evangeline would like to up her income, which is why she is requesting a 12,000 PHP loan from ASKI to buy additional sacks of rice to sell. If profits are good, Evangeline will buy and sell fruits and vegetables as well. This will help diversify her business and achieve her family’s financial stability someday.
