Raising hogs is the business of Clarita. She is 39 years old and married. She has been in the business for three years now. She gains about PHP 2,000 from each hog.
She is now asking for a loan of PHP 8,000 to buy vaccines and feed so her hogs are sustainable. This will ensure good growth of the hogs and allow her to sell them at a good price.
In the future, Clarita hopes to keep making the business profitable and save funds for the family's welfare.
