Avelino's story

Avelino is 58 years old and married to Constancia, his partner in his hog raising and farming business. They have seven children. As the head of the family, Avelino wants to provide a better way of living for his family. For him to do this, he would like to request a loan of PHP 7,000 to purchase an additional hog and to buy sacks of fertilizer to support their farming needs so they will have a good yield this harvest season. He hopes that through his business he can support the needs of his family and provide the daily school expenses for his youngest child. Avelino considers their village a poor area because of its poor road conditions especially during the wet season when transportation is rare. He says that he must work hard for the welfare of his family in order to attain his ambition in life.
