Luis, 51, is a resident of San Miguel Ramon. He is married having two children. By the grace of God and with the help of his supportive wife, he is able to provide for his children’s needs. Luis runs a hog raising business that he has been managing for two years. He raises and fattens them, and sells them at their optimum growth and size. To help him continue running his business, he is asking for financial assistance in the amount of P10,000. He will use the loan to buy feed so he can improve the weight and size of his piglets and sell them at a greater price. Luis is aiming to add more piglets in order to improve his family's standard of living.
