Annie offers homemade rice and bignay wine. She has been in this type of business for five years up to this time. Annie is also engaged in a hog-raising business wherein she raised 60 piglets, six fattening pigs and 10 sows. According to her, through her hog-raising business, she was able to educate all of her six children. She is really blessed because all of her children are professionals and have their own families.
Annie would like to gain her own income so she has been doing all her best in order to earn a living. At her age, still she enjoys making rice and bignay wines. Annie's gained profits goes to the daily maintenance of her hogs, for the salaries of her three helpers and for maintenance of her two hectares of rice field. So she is in need of additional capital in the amount of 30,000 Philippines pesos (PHP), which will be used to buy more bignay fruits to be able for her to supply all her buyers because her product sold out immediately due to the great taste of the wines she offers.
She hopes that her requested loan amount will be granted in order to provide her customers with quality service and be able to export her product into other countries. She knows that she could achieve all her goals through Him and her patience in making her business grow.
