Alicia is from Sto. Niño, Tukuran, Zamboanga del Sur. She is 47 years old, separated, and has one child.

To make a living, Alicia runs a general store, selling a variety of food and home-used products to the local community. Alicia has been engaged in her business for over 3 years and earns approximately 11,400 PHP a month for these activities.

Alicia is requesting a loan of 15,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase new items to expand her product offering.
