Evelyn's greatest dream in life is to successfully have her three children finish their studies. According to her, she doesn't have any wealth to leave her children so that’s why she is doing her best just to sustain her children's needs in pursuing their studies.
Evelyn manages a hog-raising business in their village. In addition, she offers meat in the market as an additional source of income. This time, Evelyn is requesting a loan of PHP 33,000 to buy pigs to butcher and sell in the market. Evelyn hopes to maintain this business, which will serve as her source of income in sustaining her children's needs in school.
