Jingle peacefully lives in Capatan with her loving husband and three young children. She is now thirty-three years old and manages a small piggery in their village. She fattens and breeds hogs to sell and gains about PHP 5,000 for each hog sold.
She is now asking for a loan of PHP 14,000 to buy vaccines and medicines for the sustainability of her hogs. She hopes to keep ensuring she has healthy hogs to raise so she can sell them at a higher cost upon distribution.
Jingle hopes to achieve a more profitable business and save for her children's education. She will be happy to see them professionals in their chosen career someday.
