Dominica is 55 years old and married to a farmer. The couple is blessed with three children. Two of her children are married and the other one is working. Dominica is a farmer and, eight years ago, invested her income in a livestock business. She is currently raising 10 piglets, fattening two pigs, and has a sow.
Dominica is requesting a 20,000 PHP loan to buy livestock supplies such as hog feed, vitamins, and vaccines to ensure proper nutrition for her pigs. She would like to increase her sales and profit to have a comfortable lifestyle and a viable source of income. Dominica hopes and pray that lenders will continue to support her financially so she can become a good entrepreneur someday.
