Perlita is a hard working mother who raises hogs to help her husband generate income. They live in a village, planting and harvesting rice and vegetables for sale. These hogs, rice, and vegetables are the family's major sources of income, and they aim to improve their poor living condition so they can give their children a bright future. Despite problems and difficulties in life, Perlita and her husband are determined to achieve their goals.
Perlita's plan is to raise and sell more pigs, but she does not have enough money to start. So, she is asking for an additional of 45,000 PHP to buy additional piglets, along with feed, vitamins, and vaccines. She believes that this financial assistance will enable her to improve the business, allowing her to make it viable and profitable in the future.
