Amalia is 53 and has three adult children. She helps her husband in managing their water sales business. They offer water in their community and are one of the top performance water dealers in the area. Through their strong determination and perseverance, they make their business profitable, and their income is sufficient to satisfy their needs and finance their children's education.

Amalia and her husband aim to continue and improve the business because they have more customers who keep on ordering from them. Due to inadequate capital, Amalia is asking for a loan of PHP 25,000 to buy water gallons and to maintain their equipment. They believe that the loan will help them make more gallons of water and earn more income. They are hoping that they will make their business grow and have a bright future.
