Pablo is 47 years old and has four children who are in school. Through farming he sustains his family necessities but admits that it gets difficult to pay for school fees. Hence, he is willing to have an additional income source besides farming.

So Pablo extends his farming business into livestock even though he does not have enough capital to maintain it. Pablo wanted to borrow a loan of 34,000 PHP to buy piglets, feed, and vaccines. He will use the loan wisely for the improvement and growth of his business. He hopes to increase his profit and to pay for the school fees of his children.
