Lenilyn is 35 years old, married, and blessed with three children. Since childhood, she was conscious of the piggery business of her parents. So when she could not finish her education, she put up her own hog fattening business. This is one of their sources of income, because her husband also operates a farming business. They are helping each other to raise their children in a comfortable way.
As a result, she is requesting a loan of 8,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) to buy feed for further development of her piggery business. Through her persistence and perseverance, she hopes to successfully develop her business to bring in a high income.
