Shirley has a hog fattening business. Through this occupation, she can help her husband find finances for their everyday necessities. After four months, she is earning 6,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) each hog. But if it is not healthy and meaty, it brings in lower prices.

Therefore, Shirley is asking for a loan of 15,000 PHP to buy additional hogs, feed and vitamins in order to maintain – or rather exceed – her usual proceeds. Providing necessities to the hogs will better nourish them and possibly earn higher income. She just hopes for further improvement in her business.
