Editha is 50 years old and has two children, ages 10 and 14. They live in Loon, Bohol.
Editha has been in the business of raising hogs for five years now. She plans to use her loan to buy feed, piglets and supplements for her hogs. She is determined to make a success of her business, and the loan will really help her to produce fattened hogs that are easy to market and be profitable.
