Dionicio resides at Capatan, near Tuguegrarao City, with his wife and child. To earn a living, the couple raises hogs, breeding them and fattening them to sell upon attaining the desired growth. In addition to the hog raising business, they also own a hectare plot of land, which they cultivate by planting rice. They have been working in their businesses for 10 years and earn about 10,000 PHP each month.
Dionicio aims to strengthen the hog raising business in order to earn a higher income. Therefore he is asking for a loan of 12,000 PHP to buy feed, medicine and vaccines to sustain his hogs.
He hopes to continue generating good profits from both businesses in order to provide his family with a better life.
