Having no other source of income, Maria Christina engages in cooking and selling barbecued meats in her village to help her husband in generating income.
She is 30 years old and was gifted with four children. Two of them are now in elementary education. Being responsible parents, they aim to improve their status of living in order to educate their children and give them a better life.
In this regard, Maria Christina aims to improve and strengthen the business. She is asking for an additional capital of P12,000.00 to buy pork, chicken heads, intestines, hot dogs and seasonings needed in cooking and preparing barbecued meats for sale. She is hoping that through hard work, she will be able to make more improvements in the business.
