Wilson lives peacefully in their hilly village with his family. He is a farmer who plants and harvests corn in their field. With his desire to uplift their living condition, Wilson also engages in taking care of hogs while his wife is his partner in growing their business.
Wilson wanted to take care of more hogs than what he has now. He is asking for a loan of PHP 40,000 to buy piglets to grow and feed for maintenance. He hopes to get higher profits and be able to build up a piggery house for his hogs.
