Anastacia got married when she was only 19 years old. She was not given a chance to enter college or even finish her high school level of education. According to her, during this time she instead assisted her father in caring for their family, since her mother got sick and they are nine members in the family.

Since Anastacia got married, she works hard just to feed her children and give them a better way of living. She engaged in a farming business until she realized that life is difficult when there is no other source of income. Anastacia engages herself in the retail and wholesale of beans, garlic and onions. Fifteen years from now, Anastacia wishes to have savings for their future. She wants to raise her profits. To this end, Anastacia is requesting a loan of PHP 20,000 to buy garlic, onions and ginger. She will strive to make her wish a reality.
