Ronilo is a loving father of two. He is now 36 years old and married to a housewife. She is also his partner in the hog raising business.

He has been raising hogs to fatten and breed for eight years now, and earns about 3,000 PHP for each hog sold. He is now asking for a loan of 12,000 PHP to buy an additional hog, its feed, and vaccines for sustainability. Hogs will be sold at higher cost if they attain the desired weight. From this income, Ronilo will continuously pay the school expenses of his children. Education will be the greatest legacy he can pass onto them.
