Jaime believes that "Hard work will bear a good fruit". He is 56 years old, married, and has one grown-up child. He is raising his family in a rural community where he is able to plant rice and vegetables and raise livestock for sale. Despite the hardship of living, he aims to become successful in life to give his family a better future. He aims to improve his hog-raising business by raising more piglets to sell in the future. To improve the business, he is asking for an additional loan of PHP 18,000 to buy feed, vitamins and additional piglets to raise. He hopes that this financial assistance will enable him to improve the business as he continues to work hard and strive for it.
