She is engaged in food vending, which is her main source of livelihood. Josefina usually cooks biko (sweetened glutinous rice, mixed with brown sugar, and usually mashed), budbud (slightly sweet sticky rice wrapped in banana leaves and coconut milk), and suman (a rice cake made from glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk and often steamed in banana leaves).

Josefina wants to increase her production and would like to ask for a loan to buy ingredients like coconut, sugar, and sticky rice. Any income will be used for her family's daily consumption and school fees for her children and grandchildren.
