Most parents wish to send their children to school to earn a degree and obtain employment quickly thereafter. They believe that education is the best treasure they can give to their children. Raymund is a parent who wishes to give that treasure to his children.
Raymund is 27 years of age and has one kid. It is too early for him to think of his child’s education, but he is preparing for his child’s future. Raymund admits that he did not enter higher education; his only way to attain his wish is planting rice and taking care of hogs. Raymund recently began his hog raising business and is in the process of growing the business.
Raymund is requesting a loan of P45,000 to buy piglets and feed for maintenance. He is hoping for continued growth of his business in order to make his wish a reality.
