Lorena's daily activity is feeding and raising her hogs. She currently raised one sow and eight piglets.
She is in need of more capital to provide her animals with proper nutrition. So, she is requesting a loan amounting to P40,000 to buy stock feed, vitamins and vaccine to improve the growth of her raised pigs.
Lorena devotes her time in her hog raising business because she aspires to gain greater profits to improve her homed-based store, provide for her parents needs and save for her future.
She is the second child in her family and still single.
