“A man of perseverance will bring success to his family"; this is the inspiring quotation of Emilia. Iya (as she is called in their village) finished her secondary education and is happily married to Eugene who works as a carpenter. They are blessed with three children, presently studying in high school and elementary level.

Emilia is engaged in the duck-raising business. She also engaged in vegetable vending for additional income. She wants to develop her business into a more progressive one for them to uplift their life from poverty and to be able to further support the education of their children. With this goal in mind, she is now asking for financial assistance amounting to PHP 5,000. This amount will be of big help in maintaining her business.
