Dahlia is helpful. She is married to Romeo, and together they generate income to provide sustenance for the family, such as meals and school fees. She runs a small store in front of her house and her spouse is a tricycle (motorcycle) operator. Dahlia hopes to improve her sales because her spouse's income from his business is not stable. So, she is asking for a loan of PHP 15,000 to invest in buying more merchandise to sell. She will buy sardines, coffee, sugar, eggs, soap and shampoo.

With hard work, faith in God and good income, Dahlia believes that her family will enjoy a fortunate life someday.
