Francisco
At his age of 60, Francisco is still generating income for his family. He had six children but lives separately from them. He doesn't want to rely on his children's remittances so Francisco involved himself in selling plastic items. He offered his products on a house to house basis. Francisco's monthly net income was about P5,000.

He is availing for a loan of P6,000 to buy more basins, kettles and dish cabinets to sell. This will help increase his profits and ability to save funds to use when emergencies arise.
