At the age of 24, Benjie got married. He is now 32 years old with two children. He is married to a hard-working and loving wife, Analyn. They always seem to look for a better way of life for their family, and that's why they did not stick only in the farming business.

Benjie operates his tricycle for passenger transport, which serves as an extra source of income to him. He has also managed his hog-raising business for five years. His hog-raising business is not stable because of his financial status. Actually, Benjie wants to continue his hog-raising business, because it was temporarily stopped.

Last month, Benjie sold his hogs. He is not able to buy piglets, because his earnings went to the hospitalization of and medicine for their child who is suffering an illness. Thus, Benjie is asking for a loan of 15,000 PHP to buy piglets to raise. He looks forward to the success of his business.
