Sherley is from the village of Faustino, Cauayan city, Isabela. She is married to a farmer and has two children. To make a living, she has been engaged in the hog-raising business for over 10 years. She said it is not easy work to take on this occupation. But because of her determination to pursue her family living situation, she does everything to meet their daily needs and give her children a good quality of life.
Now, she is requesting a loan of 5,000 PHP to purchase feed and vaccine to sustain her hogs. She hopes that she can get the amount she requested to further develop her piggery business.
