Marcelino is 42 years old and married, and he and his wife are blessed with three school-aged-children.
Marcelino is engaged in a hog fattening business as a source of income. He has been managing his hog raising business for over two years.
He is a very patient and industrious father. He operates his livelihood to provide all the needs of his family. It is quite difficult, but his willingness to lift his family from poor living pushes him to execute this work.
Now he is requesting a loan of PHP 7,000 to buy fees, vitamins, and vaccine for his hogs. He wants to develop his hog fattening business more to earn higher proceeds for his children.
