Francisco Froilan's story

Francisco Froilan is a 57-year-old resident of Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija. He is happily married to Lolita, a government employee, and they were blessed with two children, one of whom is still pursuing his studies. He has been engaged in farming, planting rice grains, which has been the source of their daily living for almost 16 years.
