Viveciana is 59 years old.

To earn a living, she operates a pig business. She has been in this business for over three years, and typically earns approximately 8,000 PHP each sales season.

She wants to increase her business income but her lack of capital hinders her ability to do so. Thus she is asking for a loan in the amount of 9,000 PHP for additional working capital. With the loan proceeds, she plans on buying four sacks of feed and vitamins. And as a result, she believes she can generate more net sales that can be used to pay for her daily living expenses.
