Rogelio and his wife have been working hard in order to earn a living. The couple were blessed with two children: one is married and the other one is still reviewing for the midwifery board examination.
Rogelio has operated his livestock business for two years. Aside from livestock, he also grows corn and rice crops on his 2.5 hectares of farm land. Just recently, he sold his 22 piglets so he only has three sows left. Rogelio would like to maintain his livestock business, so he can properly care for his hogs.
Rogelio would like to take out a loan of PHP 50,000 allowing him to buy 10 bags of hog feed; some of the amount will be used for maintenance of his farming business. He hopes that he can cover all his livestock needs and farm supplies to secure proper growth of his hogs and his crops. In this way, he can earn a better income and improve their way of living.
