Aside from farming, she also has a tailoring business but, since she has few customers, her focus is on the farm, which is their main source of income. The couple is thankful they have been blessed with five children: Arlee - 30 years old, college graduate; Armando Jr. - 27 years old, also a college graduate; Jefferson - 25 years old, high school graduate; Phelipo - 21 years old, and the youngest is Emmanuel - 20 years old, fourth year college student.

Eliza wants her youngest son to finish his studies and she and her husband are doing their best to send him to school. She is hoping for a loan of 12,000 PHP for farm maintenance. This couple is doing their best to support their family. Eliza always prays for God’s blessing in their life.
