For Ofelia, who has had a hog-raising business for almost ten years, “patience is the key to success”. She earns an income of PHP 5,000 for every sale of her raised pigs to buyers.

Ofelia is asking for a loan from Kiva lenders of PHP 12,000 in order to maintain the daily feed supply of her hogs. She hopes that her business continuously grows because her income in the business is really a big help to her family. Hog-raising is a good business to develop, said Ofelia. Thus she is doing her best to further improve the business into a bigger piggery.

Ofelia is married to Reynaldo Domingo who is a tricycle driver in the city. She is a good mother to their children and a good wife to her husband. Her three children are Esteban - 15 years old, followed by Florencio - 12 years of age, and Ever - 6 years old. The family currently lives in the simple place of Christine Village, Cauayan City. Ofelia hopes to maintain her family’s good camaraderie and become a more responsible resident of their community as well.
