Martina is 40 years old, married, and has four school-age children. She and her husband aim to improve their standard of living and educate their children. Due to financial challenges, Martina engages in the hog-raising business to generate additional income. She wants to raise more pigs to sell, but she does not have enough capital. For this reason, Martina is asking for an additional loan of PHP 50,000 to buy the necessary feed, vitamins and vaccines, as well as additional piglets to raise. Through patience and hard work, Martina believes that, some day, she will improve the business and make it a more viable source of income.
