Rolly runs a hog-raising business as well as planting and harvesting corn. He tells us that raising hogs is quite difficult to manage because of the need to maintain the cleanliness of the pig pen, supply them with appropriate feed, and protect them from pests and diseases. These challenges motivate him to strive hard in order to generate better income.

Rolly would like to request a loan in the amount of PHP 25,000, which will allow him to buy hog feed, vaccines, and vitamins for his raised hogs. He believes that his income will increase when he is able to feed his hogs with required feed and ensure proper nutrition according to their growth stage. Increasing his income will enable his business to continue to grow gradually and will enable him to improve his standard of living.
