Liwayway is 42 years old and is married to Manny. The couple is thankful because they have been blessed with four children. To raise her family, Liwayway engaged herself in hog-raising business. She has been in this business for two years, and usually receives a net income of PHP 7,000 per hog every 4 to 5 months.
To this end, Liwayway is requesting a loan in the amount of PHP 40,000 to buy feeds, vaccines and vitamins for the proper growth of her hogs. She hopes that she can obtain her desired loan to further improve her business.
