Marycon is a hog raiser at Enrile, in the Philippines. She is 41 years old and has four children, who are attending school.
She raises hogs and sells them upon their achieving the desired weight. She has been in her business for almost five years. She wanted to improve the growth and nutrition of the hogs, but she had insufficient funds. That is why she is asking for a loan of PHP10,000 to buy feed and vaccines for hogs, to sustain their health and growth.
With good profits from her business, Marycon will be able to keep giving good education to all her children, until they finish some day.
