Irene has been a hog-raiser for more than five years. This time, she raised one fattening because she had disposed of her other hogs. Her family's main source of income comes primarily from her farming and hog raising business.
Irene's gained profits are used for their daily household expenditures including an allowance for her youngest child, maintenance to her rice field, and she put up her home-based store. She is really glad and thankful to God for all the blessings she receives that pushes her to strive harder to be a better entrepreneur someday.
Irene would like to avail a loan of PHP 10,000 allowing her to buy stock hog feed, and some amount will be use to purchase various kinds of merchandise. She hopes to get this loan amount in order to save and educate her youngest child.
