Being the head of the family, there is no difficulty in taking action with responsibility even if you know that it is hard to do. According to Diosdado, he is doing his best just to feed his family and give them a better way of living. Diosdado has a less fortunate family, that’s why he is working hard to maintain his family's needs.
Diosdado is 52 years of age, married and has three children. Aside from farming, Diosdado manages a hog raising business in their village. He dreams of growing this livestock business for a continuous source of income. Diosdado is asking for a loan of PHP 37,000 to buy feed and vaccines for his hogs' maintenance. He hopes that his dream becomes a reality.
