Farming and hog raising has been the primary source of income of Christopher's family. He graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Animal Husbandry in the year 1999. After his graduation, he started raising pigs because he wanted to help his parents in generating income and getting ahead of life.

As the days passed by, his knowledge in proper care of animals helprf him much, most especially to increase his profit. In the year 1999, he settled down for marriage and now he has been blessed with two children. Christopher's career doesn't stop from little success, instead he let this success be a stepping stone for continuous growth and development of his farming and livestock business.

With his determination and dreams in life, again, he is asking for more capital amounting to 50,000 Philippine pesos (PHP). He will use this loan amount in buying sacks of livestock feeds, essential vitamins for his hogs and some farm supplies needed in the improvement of his corn crop production.
