Remegia loves helping other people, especially her relatives. She is 57 and single. Her previous business was hog raising, but since she started her fish vending activity and direct selling business, she immediately stopped raising hogs.

Remegia has engaged in her direct selling business for three years. Though it is quite difficult to handle due to some credits and delayed payments, she patiently runs it. She has a lot of orders, but her capital is not enough, so she is asking for a loan of PHP20,000, which will be used to buy cosmetics such as lipstick, blush and makeup. Some will also be used to buy milk fish and tilapia for her vending activity. Through satisfying her customers demand, she will be able to make her business more profitable.
