The couple were blessed with five children; two of them are married, two others are laborers, and the youngest is still studying.

Nowadays, Lope is raising four piglets, and he is happy to see that his business has improvement through the financial support given to him by the lenders. He already paid back his previous loan and has asked for another loan in the amount of P22,000 which will be used to buy 20 bags of feed and vaccines for the good health of his hogs.
