A loan of $425 helped to buy feeds, vitamins and vaccines needed in hog-raising.


Catalina's story

To overcome poverty, Catalina is engaged in a hog-raising business to generate additional income. She is now 52 years old and has two grown-up children. Catalina and her husband live happily in a village, planting and harvesting rice and vegetables to sell. They have been farmers for more than 30 years, earning profits of PHP20,000 in every harvest season. They utilize their income for their daily consumption and allowances for their children in school.

Due to financial difficulties, Catalina aims to improve her hog-raising business to increase her income. She wants to ask for an additional capital of PHP18,000 to buy feeds, vitamins and vaccines needed in hog-raising. Despite problems and difficulties she encounters in life, she has the strong determination to pursue the business. She hopes that, someday, her business will grow and become a viable source of income.
