Patricidra is married to Danilo. Their marriage was blessed with four children: Danilo, the twins Rowena and Ronald, and the youngest, Quincy, who is 22 years old. They live in Rizal, a place that has rough road conditions and that is far from the public market.
Patricia is doing a direct selling business of Avon products. With her need of additional capital, she is now asking for a loan of PHP 17,000.00 that she will use for her direct selling business. She promised herself to exert more effort in selling to have additional income for the education of her youngest daughter.
