Judith is 30 years old, married, and has two children. To add to her spouse's income, she raises hogs, which she sells after they have achieved the desired weight. She has been in the hog-raising business for almost a year. Now, she is asking for a loan of PHP 5,000 to buy feed and vaccines for sustaining her business.
Judith hopes to keep achieving good sales and to increase her profit in the future, for overall sustenance of her family.
