Omar is a hard-working and industrious man. He is married and blessed with five children. His five children are still studying. His wife's business is buying and selling gasoline.
Omar currently is raising three sows and four hogs to be fattened. He would like to make his hogs healthy so he could sell them at a better price. So, he decided to apply for a loan of PHP 20,000, allowing him to buy the necessary hog feed and vitamins for their proper growth.
Omar believes that his business will continue to grow and obtain greater income for him to educate all his five children and provide their everyday basic needs.
