Leo is a hardworking and resourceful man. He is married with three children, all of whom currently go to school. Leo’s main priority is to increase the profit he generates from his livestock and farming business. This would allow him to send his three children into higher levels of education, improve their standard of living, and maintain his business. Leo would like to improve his hogs’ weight and make them healthier, but due to insufficient capital he is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000, which will allow him to purchase eight bags of hog feed as well as necessary vitamins. Leo believes that his goal will be fulfilled because he has the ability to make it happen through his determination, hard work, and the financial assistance he has requested from lenders.
