Eufemia invested in a hog-raising business more than a couple of years ago. She has continued her business because, as she said, it helps her provide for her family and sustain her children’s education. She dreams for her two children to finish college and find decent jobs for themselves. She also hopes for her family’s living conditions to be improved.
Eufemia is asking for a loan of 11,000 PHP, which she would use to buy additional piglets and feed. This loan will help sustain her business.
