A very young business man, Walid, 27 years old, has engaged in hog raising for five years. He has enough knowledge about fattening hogs, and he is continuing to develop his capability in raising hogs because he plans to have a piggery someday. That's why he is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy additional piglets to raise and feed for them to eat. Walid hopes that someday he can expand his business and explore and broaden his knowledge of hog raising.
