Marilyn is 51 years old and has three children. She is married and has a small hog business as a source of income. She has been doing it for over 10 years now. She hopes to improve the growth of her hogs; that is why she is asking for additional capital to sustain her hogs. She is asking for P6,000 to buy feed and vaccines for her hogs.
Marilyn hopes to keep raising healthy hogs to sell them at a higher price someday. Additional revenue will be used for emergency purposes.
