“You will win through ambition and perseverance,” is the expression of a 50-year-old man who is engaged in raising poultry, such as ducks and chickens. He believes this is true because most of the highly successful people he knows are ambitious and persevere. He hopes that someday he will be one of those people. Through his ambition and perseverance, he hopes to lift his family from the difficulty of life.
Aside from his poultry business, he is also engaged in farming. He is able to work in both of these occupations through his perseverance. He dreams of expanding his poultry business so he is requesting a loan of PHP5,000 to buy ducks and chickens. Part of the loan will also be used to build a shelter for his poultry.
He hopes to win this battle of improving their living conditions and in satisfying this gift of life that God has given to him.
