Raising hogs is the business of Fevita. She started her livestock business at the age of 33 and continues to this day. According to her, farming has been the primary source of income for her family.
Fevita had one hectare of rice field and two hectares of corn field. Her spouse is in charge of taking care of their farming business. The couple has three children. All of them are married and separately living with them. Fevita has raised one sow so far. She plans to purchase four piglets and livestock feed for their daily maintenance, but the capital intended for her hog-raising business is not enough, so she has asked for a loan of 10,000 PHP. She hopes to obtain this loan in order to have a better way of living and to help her business continue to grow.
