Cecilia is 51 years old and is married. She has two children. With the help of her piggery business, she can satisfy the family's daily necessities but not the needs of her children for school. Despite this, she patiently works hard in her business, hoping that will provide her a better income.
With the eagerness to gain enough income, Cecilia is asking for a loan of 15,000 pesos from ASKI that will be used to buy feeds, medicine and vitamins. She hopes that it will provide good results and let her earn higher income.
