A loan of $250 helped to buy additional pigs for his hog-raising business.


Ruben's story

Ruben is a 51-year-old man who lives with his wife and children. He is a hog raiser and breeder and has four years of experience in this field. Ruben chose this particular activity because meat is in very high demand in their community. Ruben usually buys piglets in the local market, fattens and raises them for 5-6 months. Then, he resells the grown pig for a more profitable price to market vendors and butchers. His wife helps to look after the animals and feed them. Demand for fresh meat is very high and Ruben would like to cover the demand of his permanent clients. For this purpose, he has applied for P 10,000. He will use the loan to buy two piglets.
