Joel is a hog raiser and farmer. According to him, his main source of income comes from planting of corn crops. Since his farming is improving, he decided to raise hogs as his additional source of income. He is currently raising two sows and two fattening hogs.

Joel would like to have continuous growth of his business, but he struggles with shortage of capital. With regards to this matter, he is asking for a loan of PHP 13,000 to allow him to buy hog feed and vitamins. Also, some of the amount will be used for maintenance of his corn-farming business.
