Tranquilino lives with his long-time partner and his three children. He is a responsible and industrious man who is engaged in the livestock and farming business. With his patience, hard work, dedication, and resourcefulness, he is able to generate income for his family's expenses. Tranquilino really appreciates his long-time partner's effort and support in generating funds for their family.

Tranquilino aims to strengthen his livestock and farming business, and is doing his very best in order to attain this goal. For now, he would like to ask for a loan of 25,000 PHP, which would allow him to buy hog feed and two piglets to raise. He hopes that he can continually improve his livestock business with this loan. The income could support the needs of his family and let his three children finish their studies. He could also save some money for emergency purposes.
