Leonilla is married to a tricycle driver. They live in the village of Villa Marzo Cordon. The couple have been blessed with six children.

For the past five years, Leonilla has operated a transportation business, particularly motorcycle transport. Every day her husband wakes up early to transport the passengers going to and from the market.

Leonilla faces a major challenge, which is renewing her franchise of motorcycle transport. Due to insufficient capital, she is asking for additional capital from the lenders amounting to P30,000. This will help her business grow because her operation will not stop just because she doesn't renew her franchise.

She also feels that she could make her motorcycle more comfortable to the passengers so that they could always rent it when they travel to nearby areas of the community where they live.
