Hog raising is the main source of income for Marilou's family. She is married to Edwin, who is a carpenter within their village. The couple is blessed with five children, namely: Ednalyn-16 years old, high school student; Analyn-14 years, high school student; Arlene-8 years old, second grade pupil; Jerwin-7 years old, first grade pupil; and John Jeric-2 years old. The couple wants their children to finish their schooling, that’s why they are striving hard for them to provide for their needs.

Marilou needs funds for her hog raising business. In this regard, she is requesting a loan amounting to Php5,000 for the feed and maintenance of her pigs and some will be used for the repair of the pigs' pen. She is really praying that lenders will grant her request.
