Rosalina started raising hogs in 2009. She began this business at a very young age to help her parents to generate funds for their family's basic commodities. Rosalina just finished high school. Although she didn't enter college, she is still able to manage her business through the help of her parents.
Rosalina would like to take out a loan of PHP30,000 to buy feed and vitamins for her hogs and to buy supplies to maintain her farm plot. She knows that through this loan she could ensure the proper growth of her hogs. In addition, she could help her parents in preparing the farm plot and buying some farm supplies. Rosalina assures that she can obtain greater profit due to her hard labor and adaptation of new techniques in raising healthy hogs and producing corn crops.
