Jonathan is married to a businesswoman. The couple was blessed with two children who currently go to school. He and his wife work hard in order to make a living.
Jonathan is engaged in the agricultural business, particularly raising hogs. Aside from hog-raising, he also invests his time in raising rice crops. Jonathan's aim is to increase his profit to be able to let his two children finish their studies and be able to improve their way of living.
Jonathan would like to apply for a loan amounting to PHP 20,000, allowing him to buy feed, vitamins, and vaccines to make his pigs healthier upon reaching their optimum growth. He hopes to get this amount of loan in order to have continuous business growth.
