A loan of $500 helped to buy feed for his hogs.


Dante's story

Dante is 47 years old, married and has three children. Dante’s wife operates a sari-sari (general) store in their village. His wife’s income from the business provides for their daily household expenditures. Dante manages a livestock business primarily raising and fattening hogs.

Due to the increasing stock in the market, and especially the growing agricultural supply, Dante is asking for a loan of PHP 20,000 to buy feed for his hogs. The loan will help him grown his hogs faster and sell them at the right time.
