Due to financial difficulty, Maria engages in hog-raising to supplement her husband’s income. She is 56 years old and was blessed with five children. She and her husband aim to become successful in life in order to give their children a bright future. For this reason, Maria planned to raise more pigs to sell but she has insufficient capital. She is asking for an additional of PHP 10,000 to buy feed, vitamins and more piglets to raise. Through patience and strong determination, she believes that she will be able to improve more of her business in the future.
