All her life, Florentina has devoted her time to raising hogs and buying and selling of bananas.
Florentina is a loving and industrious mother of her six grown-up children. She has been both mother and father to her children. Despite her situation in life, she still stands firm and works hard to sustain their basic commodities needs. She thanks God for the guidance, protection, and unending love for her family. Shortage of income has pushed her to strive hard in running her livestock business. Currently, she is raising two pigs for fattening and one sow. She needs to provide her hogs with proper nutrition and care in order to improve their growth until they reach their optimum growth. But due to inadequate capital, she is asking for financial assistance, in the amount of P10,000 allowing her to buy feeds and vaccine for her hogs. She hopes to obtain this loan to attain her goals.
