Due to financial difficulty, Rozel engages in a hog-raising business to generate additional income for her family. She is 34 years old and has two school-aged children. They plan to improve their poor living condition to educate their children and give them a better life. In this regard, she plans to raise more piglets and sell them in the future. Due to insufficient capital, she is asking for an additional P38,000.00 to buy additional piglets, feed, and vitamins needed in hog-raising. Despite problems and difficulties in life, she has the determination to improve the business and hopes that someday she will make the business grow and be a viable source of income to continue sending their children to school and give them a bright future.
