Roberto works hard to earn his living. He is married with three children. Roberto just finished the elementary level of education. Despite his lack of knowledge in raising pigs and farming, he is still able to make his hogs healthy and is able to sell them for a better profit. Roberto's earned profit was used to buy new pigs to raise.

Roberto aims to raise his pigs to be healthier and free from any diseases. To be able to attain his goal, he is requesting financial support from a PHP 40,000 loan which will allow him to buy pig feed, vitamins and vaccines. He knows that, through providing essential feed and vitamins to his pigs, he can obtain more profit which will serve his family's needs and enable him to educate his three children.
