Candido is a responsible and hard-working husband and father to his three children. He is glad because his wife is supporting him in improving his hog raising and farming business. Though he only has a high school education, he has still been able to make his farming business grow tremendously. Candido’s main priority is to earn more income so he can let his three children finish their studies and improve their living conditions. To make his dream come true he is asking for financial support in the amount of PHP 20,000, which will allow him to buy 8 sacks of hog feed and some farm supplies. He hopes to get this loan so he can continue to improve his hog raising and farming business.
