Rhealiza is 25 years old and is married with three children. To generate income, she engaged herself in a hog-raising business. She usually earns about PHP 2,500 per piglet. She has been in her business for two years.
Rhealiza wants to lift up her family from poor living. She wanted to have more hogs to raise, but she lacks the necessary capital. In this regard, she is asking for a loan in the amount of PHP 30,000 to buy additional hogs to raise and also feed for them.
She is hoping that very soon she can prove that she can provide a better living for her family.
