Eric Lester
Eric is still single, but he works hard to help his parents meet their needs. Eric’s goal in life is to have a stable source of income before he gets married. Eric runs a hog raising business. He also operates a tricycle for passenger transportation to make additional income.

Eric had difficulties in buying feed for the maintenance of his pigs. His daily earnings from the tricycle business could not buy his pigs feed. For this reason, he decided to request a loan of 30,000 Philippine pesos to buy feed for his hogs. He is hoping for the growth of his business in order to support his parents and have savings for his future.
