Graciela is 50 years old, married, and peacefully living with her spouse and children at Libag Sur. She has a small hog-raising business and income from the business has been very helpful in giving sustenance to her family. Now, she is asking for additional capital of PHP 20,000 to buy medicines and feed to ensure sustainability of her hogs. With enough sustenance, the hogs will grow healthier and she can sell them for a good profit.
Someday, Graciela hopes to keep improving her hog sales so she can earn funds to use for the family's emergencies.
