“In every sacrifice there is a gift": this is what Rebecca believes. Every day she is very optimistic that she can receive a gift through her business. Rebecca is 53 years old and married to Euligio. They live in the province of Isabela and they are blessed with three children. Rebecca is a vendor in their village. She sells a variety of food products in order to earn a living. Some of her products include: vegetables, fish sauce, goto (congee), and halo-halo during summer in her little stall located near their house.

Rebecca would like to request a loan in the amount of 15,000 Philippine Pesos to be used as additional working capital for her business. She has always been busy with her efforts to earn a living. She wishes that somehow, someday, they can uplift their poor living condition so that her children and future families will not suffer so much from life's difficulties.
