At present, Wilfredo is raising four piglets and it’s been five years of patience and sacrifices he has had devote to make this business profitable. He is really thankful because through his livestock business, he is able to support his family and send his children to school.
Wilfredo would like to educate his three children, for it is the only thing that he can give to his three children. He hopes that his children can finish their degree courses so that they can find better opportunities after pursuing their courses.
With regard to his main goal, he would like to take out a loan amounting to P15,000 which will be used to buy feed supplies for his hogs to make them healthy and bigger until they reach their optimum growth. He is hoping for continuing financial support from the lenders, to be able to have a better way of living and obtain higher income to cover his family's needs.
