Vilma started her business when she was still single. She had only one pig until the business became established and she has expanded it by adding more piglets to raise. Vilma has been in the business for almost 30 years. Vilma now has six pigs to raise for fattening. With the high cost of feed, Vilma is asking for a loan of PHP 20,000 to buy feed for her hogs. She believes that the loan will be a big contribution to maintain her business and continue it as her source of income.
