Due to financial burden, Benedicto became involved in the hog-raising business to earn additional income for his family. He is a farmer who lives in a village with his four children. Together with his wife, they planned to upgrade their poor living condition so that they will give their children a better life. They aimed to improve their sources of income so that they will become financially stable someday.
