Mrs. U. is on her third loan cycle and is applying for the amount of PHP 10,000 to be used for her hog-fattening business, specifically to purchase feed for hog-growing and hog maintenance.

She started this business several years ago by buying just one pig and raising it to become a sow. Mrs. U. is planning to build a piggery building someday. She hopes that her daughter can find better work with support from her financially through the income from her business and hand in hand with Kiva.
