Nilo lives in the village of Pinto Alfonso Lista, a place known to be mountainous. The primary source of their income is their livestock and farming business. Nilo is 41 years old, married to an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker), and has two children.
Nilo raises hogs and is a farmer. He started his agricultural business in 1988. He is thankful to God because he couldn't make his business productive without Him. In the absence of his wife, he acts as both father and mother to his two children. Despite his situation, he is able to manage his time wisely on both his family and his business. Nilo is fattening seven hogs and growing corn on his two and a half hectare corn farm. All he wants in life to get ahead, educate his two children, and improve their standard of living.
Nilo would like to ensure proper growth of his hogs, so he is requesting a loan of PHP 12,000, which will be used to buy vitamins and hog feed. He is hoping for approval of this loan amount. In this way, he can fulfill his goal in life.
