Jose is married and has been blessed with three children. He has been running his hog raising business for 9 years while his wife takes charge of their variety store. Hard work and determination are Jose's guiding principles in running his business.
Jose would like to improve his hog raising and corn field businesses, so he is asking for a loan of PHP 30,000. He will use this loan to buy hog feed and a portion will be used to maintain his corn field. With this loan, he will be able to produce quality hogs that will give him enough income for his family's well being and children's education.
