Diane Krystl
At the young age of 29, Diane had already been blessed with two children, ages 10 and 8 years old; she is sending both to primary school. Mark (Diane's spouse) works as a local farmer.

To add to the family's income, Diane raises hogs and sells them to the butcher in their village. She usually earns 1,500 Philippines pesos (P) with each hog. Profits are used for the daily needs of the family and to pay school fees and allowances for the children.

Diane is now requesting a loan of P9,000 to buy feed, medicines and vitamins for the hog to ensure good nutrition.

In the future, she would like to generate more income to continuously educate her children. According to her, education is the only legacy they could pass on to their children.
