Eduardo is engaged in a livestock business wherein he fattens and raises pigs.
He is separated and blessed with seven children. Three of his children have settled into marriage, while another three are farmers, and his youngest child is still studying.
Eduardo said that being a single parent is quite hard because of greater responsibilities. But as time passed by, he has realized that it's a part of life.
Eduardo would like to keep improving his farming and livestock business, so he is requesting a loan of PHP 30,000 that he will use to buy hog feed, vitamins, and vaccine for his pigs. He hopes that through this financial assistance, he can raise his hogs well, so he can sell them for a greater price.
He believes that his profit will serve the overall welfare of his family.
