Maribel's desire is to have a good relationship with her family and to always have faith in our almighty God. Maribel is 22 years old, married, and proud to share that at her age she already has one child. Maribel and her husband work hard to give her child a better future.
Maribel’s husband is a farmer. Aside from farming, Maribel manages a livestock business raising hogs, which serves as an additional source of income for the family. Maribel started this type of business as she knows that it will be a big help to sustain the needs of her family through the profit she earns.
With regards to her livestock business, Maribel is asking for a loan of 20,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) to buy feed for the maintenance of her pigs. She believes that the loan will be a big contribution to help her maintain her livestock business.
