Evelyn lives at Palao. She is 32 years old and married to Pedro, and they have two children. To generate income, she raises hogs, to resell them for profits. She had been in her business for over a year and earns about PHP 2,000 per hog sale.
Evelyn hopes to continue providing good care to the hogs, and that is why she is asking for a loan of PHP 5,000. She will use the loan to buy medicines and hog feed. It will help her to achieve good profits in the business. Her future plan is to keep growing as a successful hog-raiser.
