Marites has been a hog raiser for eight years. She is from the village of Villa Marzo, Cordon. Marites is happily married to Florencio. The couple was blessed with four children: two are studying, and the other two are working.
Marites manages a livestock business, and at the same time, buys and resells frozen foods such as hot dogs and dressed chicken. Her main goal is to increase her profit to be able to educate her two children and provide them comfortable living conditions.
Marites plans to buy two additional piglets and their daily hog feed maintenance, but her capital is not enough. She is asking for a loan of 10,000 Philippines pesos (PHP). She hopes to get this amount of loan so she could achieve her goal in life and with her business.
