Due to the hardships of living, James engages in a hog-raising business to generate additional income. He is a farmer who is raising his family in a village, planting and harvesting rice and vegetables for sale. He is now 52 years old and has two adult children. He is aiming to improve his hog-raising business to earn and save more income for the future of his family.

Because he has insufficient capital, he is asking for an additional PHP 34,000 to buy feed, vitamins and additional piglets to raise. He believes that through patience and hard work, he will improve his piggery and hopes that someday he will make his business grow.
