Arlene is a forty-year-old woman from the community of Ubay, Bohol. She is married with three children ages seven, twelve and sixteen.

For the past three years Arlene has raised hogs. She is applying for a 6000 PHP loan through CEVI to buy another piglet plus feed and supplements. Raising hogs requires a lot of perseverance since one has to wait many months before seeing a profit. Arlene works hard, though, and she knows that with the help of the loan she will be able to take care of her pigs well.

In the future Arlene hopes to see her children being successful in their studies.
