Hermina believes that investment is compared to a treasure that is quite useful when you are badly in need. She is happily married and generally has nine adult-aged children. With her investment in business, she is hoping to help her children in time of their needs. Hermina and her husband lives together in the village of La Salette, Benito Soliven, Isabela.
Hermina is involved in raising of hogs in their village. She has two hogs so far and she is still hoping to increase their numbers when her loan amounting to PHP4,000 will be granted. She also hopes to have supply of feeds so that she won’t encounter any problem anymore in times of shortage. She aims to uplift their living condition someday with the help of her husband, lenders and most especially with our merciful God.
