Domingo is a hog-raiser within his local community of Namnama Alfonso Lista. He has been in line with this field of business for five years. Aside from raising hogs, he also grows corn crops on his one hectare of corn field.

Domingo currently raises five hogs to be fattened. With the number of his hogs, he struggles because of a shortage of capital. For this reason, he is seeking a loan of PHP 25,000. He will use this loan amount for buying stocks of hog feed and essential vitamins, ensuring his hogs will have good nutrition until they reach their maturity date.

In that way, he can sell his hogs for a greater amount, which will serve as sustenance of his family’s basic necessities. He will also be able to let his two children finish their studies.
