Fredy is happily living with his wife and two children within the local community of Pinto Alfonso Lista. His place is known to be mountainous and agricultural.
He has run and managed his hog-raising business for five years. He is currently raising one sow and two hogs for fattening. He plans to obtain more hogs to raise in order to gain more income to meet all his family's needs and cover his agricultural expenses. But due to insufficient capital, he is asking for financial assistance from lenders in the amount of 15,000 Philippine pesos. He will use this loan amount to purchase feed to improve his hog-raising business. Fredy would be glad if his requested loan amount were approved.
