The couple and their two children live in Barangay Minanga Sur Iguig, Cagayan.

Teresita has a small hog raising business that serves as her source of income. She sells the pigs in a slaughter house in Solana, Cagayan, which is the pig buying station in their area. To maintain her business Teresita needs more capital. She is hoping to borrow a loan of around PHP7,000 to purchase more feed for her hogs to make them grow healthy.
