Sonia, age 51, raises pigs to earn an income. She and her husband have five children, two of whom are enrolled in school.
Sonia has requested a PHP 17,000 loan through NWTF in order to buy medicines and vaccines for her pigs.
Sonia has been raising pigs for five years now, and has borrowed six times in the past from NWTF to sustain her business. In the future, she would like to save enough money to afford to send her children to college as well as to improve her business.
