Febita chooses to engage in a village store business in assisting her husband with their financial needs. Due to lack of capital, she is now requesting a loan of 4,000 pesos to sustain her small business. Through the loan, she can purchase additional items such as canned goods, soft drinks, basic commodities and toiletries that are looked for by her customers. She is hoping that her current weekly income of 1,500 pesos (about $31 USD) will increase so she can provide the needs of their family and schooling of their children by working hard.

Febita is married to Eduardo, a farmer in the village. They have five children: Eduardo Jr., 23 years old; Alex, 20 years old, a college graduate and now working as a security guard; Avel, 18 years old, a college student; Arnel, 14 years old, a high school student; and their youngest is 12 years old, in grade IV.
