"To become successful in life" is the main goal of every individual like Aileen, who is 32 years old and still single. She is a college graduate but due to lack of job opportunities, she decided to engage in a hog-raising business to generate income. She aims to improve the business and make it a viable source of income to help her parents in financing the education of her younger brother and sister, and to save some for her future.
Due to insufficient capital, she is asking for an additional 50,000 Philippines pesos to buy feeds, vitamins, vaccines and additional piglets to raise. She believes that this financial assistance will help her to work out her plan and is hoping that someday, she will be successful as she continues to work hard and strive for it.
