Evelyn, 52 years old, is married to a driver, and a mother of two. She has been in the livestock business for almost 15 years, particularly hog raising. She and her husband also owned a jeepney and they used it for a transportation business. Evelyn's net income every three months is 22,000 PHP. She's asking for a loan of 30,000 PHP to purchase some hogs to raise.
She hopes that lenders will continue assisting her in the business so that she can further improve it and support her family with enough basic necessities.
