Genalyn is 33 years old, is married, and has been blessed with four children. She is thankful because, through her perseverance and initiative, she has been able to earn greater profits. She manages a business manufacturing salted eggs (red eggs) and selling "balut." She has been involved in this type of business for 13 years. According to Genalyn, the income from this business has been used for the family's daily food consumption, allowances for her children in school, and other household expenditures.
Genalyn aspires to the continuous growth of her food-manufacturing business. She is requesting financial support in the amount of 35,000 Philippine pesos (PHP), which she will use to buy fresh eggs in bulk so she can supply all her customers and improve the taste of her products. Her dream is to become successful in her chosen business and for the product she manufactures to become popular and profitable at an affordable price.
