At the age of 35, Riolita has four children, all of whom are in elementary school. She needs to work hard because she wishes to give them the opportunity to attend high school and college. She wants them to have a better future, and education is the only treasure she can give them.

Riolita runs a rice farming business. She and her husband manage their business, and they work together to achieve better results. Riolita always prays that she will get better yields from her crops.
