Remedios and her husband work together as farmers. Their marriage has been blessed with six children, two sons and four daughters. They have three grandchildren. Their family happily lives in Barangay Rizal province Isabela. Here, people are united in their work for their community and for their families.

Aside from farming, Remedios and her husband also raise two hogs and vend cogon (a native grass). The couple is doing everything they can to earn a living.

In order to avoid asking for credit from traders, Remedios would like to take this opportunity to request a loan of PHP 30,000. This will provide for their farm and help to maintain their hog-raising business.

Remedios said that they must work hard in order to improve their lives.
