Danilo's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy hog feed and three piglets to be raised.

Danilo's story

Danilo is a hog raiser within his local community. He is industrious and a business-oriented man. According to him, farming has been the main source of income of his family.Danilo is married and has five children. His eldest is married; the second child is an Overseas Filipino Worker and the other three children are still studying. Danilo manages his hog raising business, fishpond and farming business. He is grateful because his gained profits were used for their daily needs, allowances for the children and maintenance of their farming business. Danilo raised three hogs; he plans to buy an additional three piglets but his capital isn't adequate so he requested a loan of PHP 25,000. This amount would really help him most especially in making his raised hogs healthy and with proper growth upon reaching their maturity. He is hoping for continuous improvement of his hog raising business so he can let his three children finish their studies and be able to have a better way of living.
