Angelina's story

This is Angelina, 41, a resident of Silang, Cavite, Philippines. She is married to Rene, a farmer, and is the mother of two children. She, together with her husband, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time she is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

Her regular customers are locals, tourists, neighbours and the community. She earns a minimum of 400 PHP in sales every day.
