Leonardo is from La Suerte. He is married and has four children. To meet his family's needs, Leonardo raises hogs to fatten, breed, and sell. He has been doing this for over seven years and earns about 4,000 PHP for each hog. He has spent his income wisely on food and school fees. Leonardo would like to develop his business, but he does not have enough money to do so. So he is requesting a 18,000 PHP loan from ASKI to buy feed, medicine, and vaccines to ensure his hogs health. If the hogs grow well, he can sell them at a higher price and will increase his income.
