Currently, Ernesto grows corn on his one hectare of land and raises two sows. He has been running his livestock business for one year.

Ernesto wants to feed his pigs with quality feed but due to shortage of capital he is seeking a loan of 25,000 Philippine pesos, which will allow him to buy supplies such as feed, vitamins and vaccines for his livestock.
