From the hardship of life he had experienced since childhood, Ernesto learned how to be a hard-working man. Ernesto is 32 years of age, married and blessed with one child. His wife is an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker) in the Middle East. Ernesto wants to help his wife even in just a simple way. He realizes that living far from his loved one is difficult because he has two roles to perform for their child.

Ernesto has been engaged in a hog raising business for two years. He wants to maintain the business and wishes to develop it without relying on his wife's remittances. Toward this goal, Ernesto wanted to borrow a loan of PHP 32,000 to buy feed, vaccines and vitamins for his hogs. He hopes to avail of the loan and will use it for the growth of his business.
