Rosita believes that "hardships and difficulties are not hindrances to success." She is 54 years old and has 10 grown-up children. Rosita has been engaged in a hog-raising business for almost 11 years. She usually earns a monthly profit of PHP 10,000, which she spends on food, clothing and allowance for her youngest child, who is still studying.

Due to the high cost of commodities and school fees, Rosita needs to improve her business to earn sufficient income. She is therefore requesting additional capital of PHP 30,000 to buy more piglets to raise and necessary feed and vitamins for hog-raising. Rosita hopes that someday her business will grow and become a viable source of income.
