Romulo has been a hog raiser for more than 15 years. He is currently raising two sows, one boar, and three fattening pigs. He also runs a backyard vegetable and corn farming business. He is thankful because he is able to sustain his family's needs and supply his farming business through the income he earns.
Romulo is 58 years old, married, and blessed with three children. One of his children is married, while the other two are single and are his companions in cultivating his farmland. Romulo wants to have continuous growth of his livestock business for him to earn more income. For his dreams to become a reality, he is asking for additional capital of 40,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) to allow him to buy hog feed, vitamins for his hogs, and vegetable seeds for his backyard garden business. He believes that this loan amount will enable him to fulfill his dreams in life and with his businesses. Romulo hopes and prays that his requested loan will be granted.
