Danilo raises corn crops and five piglets on his five hectares of farm land. He is glad because his sacrifices and dedication push him to continually improve his business and livelihood. Danilo is married with five children. All of his five children go to school.
Danilo's wife owns and runs a variety store and offers different kinds of vegetables. He is grateful because his wife is supportive in his every decision. Since all of their five children go to school, the couple also needs greater income. With regards to this situation, Danilo decided to request additional financial assistance amounting to PHP 25,000. This will allow him to buy hog feed and vaccines for his hog-raising business. He hopes and prays that his hogs will become healthier upon reaching optimum growth, because he wishes with the income to educate all five of his children and give them a comfortable lifestyle someday.
