Since Josephine doesn't want to rely only on her husband's salary, she has sought ways to help her husband generate income. Because she has always been fascinated by animals, she has been involved in a hog-raising business for the past year, currently raising four pigs for fattening,
Josephine is now requesting a loan of PHP7,000 to buy hog feeds and vaccines, purchases that will result in healthier pigs who have achieved their optimum growth. Consequently, Josephine will obtain greater profits, contributing to an overall improvement of the business.
