Jomar is 41 years old and engaged in the hog-fattening business as his primary source of income. He is blessed with three children and it is hard for him to promote their living with all their needs, especially their education. Therefore, he usually feels he has insufficient funds.

He just earns PHP 5,000 each time he sells his hogs and he aspires to increase his sales. Now, he is asking for a loan of PHP 16,000 to buy vitamins for his hogs and two more hogs as additional sources of sales. He hopes that through his hard work and this loan, he will have better living conditions and be able to promote the education of his children.
