Benigna is 47 years old, married and has six children, four of whom are attending school. She has a small business raising and selling hogs to butchers. She has been doing this for eight years now. She usually makes 4,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) for each hog sold, and it goes for their meals and allowances for school.

To improve her sales, Benigna is asking for a loan of 8,000 PHP to ensure good nutrition for her hogs. She will buy hog feed and medicines. Someday, she hopes to become a successful hog raiser and further improve their poor living conditions.
