Mark Kristoffer
Mark Kristoffer is now 26 years old and married but has no children yet. He already earned a degree but, due to a lack of job opportunities, he is engaged in a hog-raising business to generate income. He has been in this business for almost 4 years and usually earns a net income of 8,000 PHP a month which he uses to satisfy their basic necessities.

He aimed to improve this business by raising more pigs but, due to inadequate capital, he is asking for a loan of 30,000 PHP to buy piglets, feed, vaccines and vitamins for his hog-raising business. He believes that, through this loan, he will be able to acquire additional piglets to raise. He mentioned that, through patience and strong determination, he will improve the business and make it a viable source of income in the future.
