Perlita and her husband dream of improving their way of living for their family, and to send their children to school. She is 48 years old, and blessed with four children.
She is engaged in the hog raising business, and helps her husband generate income for their family. Due to high cost of school fees, she needs to earn a higher income to meet the educational needs of their children.
Perlita plans to borrow additional capital for the maintenance of her business. She needs to borrow P15 000 to buy additional piglets, feed, vitamins, and vaccines.
She believes that her loan will be granted to improve the business and make it profitable in the future.
