Delaila is married and blessed with one child. Her priority in life is to give the best way of living to her son. Her husband is a patient man who is engaged in a retailing business of dry goods in their village. With her determination to help her husband in carrying their needs, Delaila engaged herself in a livestock business.
At present, Delaila encounters a shortage in financing her hogs feed. Since this is a source of income where she can apply her expertise, she wishes to maintain the business. Delaila decided to borrow a loan amounting to P40,000 to buy feed, vaccines and vitamins for her hogs. She hopes that through her business, she will help her husband and further support her child's needs.
