Edlyn is 29 years old, married and blessed with two children.

She has been operating a livestock and fish selling business. She would like to increase the number of ducks but she feels financial insufficiency. This led Edlyn to request PHP 5,000 to buy more ducklings to care for. Part of the loan will be used to purchase fingerlings (small fish) that she will raise in her fishpond.

With her determination, she’s able to develop her business but her desire to keep improving it and somehow become successful motivated her to borrow the loan.
