“Nothing is impossible with God” says Angelita B., a resident of San Antonio Ilagan, Isabela. She is 46 years old and married to Frecisco B., a farmer. They have two children: Jemma, 27 years old, already married and Jenny, 18 years old, a high school graduate. Angelita and her husband are trying to look for more opportunities to be able to send their youngest daughter to college.

Angelita is engaged in the hog raising business. To further improve it, she is borrowing a loan of PHP 5,000. She plans to use the loan to purchase two piglets and feed. This will be of great help to her family as an additional source of income. She is hoping that through their savings, her daughter can pursue her college education.

Life is difficult but Angelita wanted to prove that no matter how hard life is, she will survive together with her family by patiently struggling out from poverty.
