Wilfredo operates his livestock and farming business. He had 6,000 square meters of vegetable farmland, a half-hectare of rice field, and three hectares of mango farmland.

Since Wilfredo disposed his hogs already, he plans to replace them with a new one, but due to the increase of expenses in his farming business, his capital intended for his livestock business is no longer sufficient. With regards to this matter, he is asking for a loan of PHP 35,000, which will be used in buying one piglet and livestock feed. Some of the amount will be used in maintenance of his rice field, backyard vegetables, and mango farm lot.

Wilfredo knows that he could improve his way of living, educate his youngest child, and save some for his family’s emergency purposes because he and his wife go together with their decisions in life.

In addition, they adopt new farming strategies and ensure proper growth of their rice crops, vegetables, and raised hogs. In this way, he could earn greater profits for his family’s welfare.
