Marites is a loving wife and responsible mother to her two children. She says, "Everyone aims to have a steady income and a better way of life, but it's our own choice how to get them.” She enjoys farming and loves animals. She farms rice and corn, and two years ago she decided to raise hogs as well.

Marites is now applying for a 25,000 PHP loan from ASKI for pig feed and vaccines. She feels such a loan would result in further growth of her hog business as driven by continued support from lenders and wise management.

As parents, Marites and her husband hope for profitable work so they can educate their two children and provide them with a comfortable life.
