Rosita has been standing as both father and mother to her four children for more than 33 years, due to the early death of her spouse. She is glad because, despite her situation as a single mother, she is still able to sustain her family's necessities.

Rosita manages her livestock, farming and junk shop businesses. She is seeking additional capital in the amount of PHP10,000 which will be used in buying more recycled materials to sell, such as empty bottles, empty boxes and iron, and some of the amount will be used to finance her rice field business.

She hopes to obtain this amount so she could continue to improve her junk shop, livestock and farming businesses. In this way, she could earn more income which will serve her family's welfare and the education of her youngest child.
