Normaliza owns a retail store and raises hogs for sale. She is 38 years of age, married and blessed with two children who currently attend school. Normaliza's income from her retail store goes toward their daily consumption and allowances for her two children.

Normaliza wants to maintain her hog raising business, but due to insufficient funds, she is requesting a loan of PHP 40,000 (Philippine pesos). She will use this loan in purchasing hog feed and medicine to nourish her hogs with proper nutrition for reaching their optimum growth.

Normaliza is hoping for approval of her requested loan amount so she can secure her family’s future and be able to let her two children finish their studies.
