Edwin and his wife work hard to have a stable source of income. The couple has been blessed with only one child who is currently studying. Edwin raises hogs and has for more than three years up to this time. His goal is to increase his income so he can send his child into a higher level of education and so he can have a better way of living.
Edwin would like to borrow a loan of PHP20,000 which will be used to buy three piglets and hog feed for the daily maintenance of his hog-raising business. He and his wife are thankful to the lenders for their unending financial support which they provide to make his farming and livestock more profitable and productive. He knows that his goals in life will be obtained someday.
