Grace is 48 years of age, married and blessed with four children.
She has managed a hog-raising business for 10 years now. She usually earns PHP 8,000 from selling pigs every four months when they reach full growth. She uses her income to maintain the immediate needs and studies of her children.
Grace is requesting a loan of PHP 15,000 to purchase piglets to raise and feed so that she can earn a higher income and save for unexpected emergencies.
She dreams of fully providing for her children's needs in school as they complete their education, which will be serving as the key to a bright future for them.
