Rogelio’s greatest dream in life is having investment in his village and financing his children's education. Rogelio is engaged in a service business repairing malfunctioned televisions and he also has a hog raising business. He now has his business stall in his village, but before this he provided his services in different villages by going house to house.
Rogelio wants to expand his business by putting up a piggery business as an additional source of income. He is asking for a loan of PHP 15,000 to buy piglets to raise, as well as to buy other materials needed in his electronics repair business. He hopes that his businesses will continue to grow and become more profitable.
