With her passion to succeed, Elybet always finds a way to achieve success. She is managing a hog-raising business in her village. Elybet also runs a meat-vending business in the market. She has been 5 years in the meat-vending business and 10 years in her hog-raising business. Elybet wants to interest more customers – that’s why she always assures that she is delivering good service to her customers.
Elybet is asking for a loan of 50,000 Philippine pesos to buy hogs to butcher and sell in the market. She believes that this loan will be a big contribution in growing the business. She will be using her profit for the education of her three children who are studying. She would like to think that someday her children will finish their education because of her perseverance and hard work.
