Marshal is 29 years old and single. He lives in a rural community with his beloved parents. He engages in a hog-raising business to help his parents in generating income. He aimed to earn and save more income to support the education of his younger brother and to save for his future. He planned to raise more pigs to sell, but he has limited capital.
For this reason, Marshal wants to access a loan of PHP 10,000 to buy hog feed, vitamins, additional piglets to raise, and materials needed to improve the pigpen. Through patience and hard work, Marshal believes that he will make his business profitable.
