Dionicio is 47 years old and is married with six children. They live in the village of San Francisco.
Dionicio is willing to work hard to lift up his family from poverty. That's why he engaged himself in the hog raising business. He has been in his business for seven years and earns about PHP 7,500 per hog every time he sells one. At this time, Dionicio is asking for a loan in the amount of PHP 13,000 to buy feed, vaccine and vitamins to ensure the proper growth of his hogs.
Dionicio hopes to boost up his business to secure his family living situation.
