Eva is 39 years old and married, wth six children. She is married to Joseph, a hog raiser.
To add to her spouse's income, she is selling snacks, such as fish balls, hot dogs, and boiled eggs, to the people in their village. They both generate income so they will give the best education to all their children.
She is now asking for a loan of PHP 6,000 to buy fish balls, hot dogs, and eggs to sell and help increase her income.
Eva hopes to keep making their businesses profitable to save for her children's matriculation fees. They will be happy and proud to see them professionals in their chosen career someday, despite poverty in life.
