Liberty peacefully lives in Zamora with her loving husband and two children. She is now 54 years old and manages a small piggery in their village. She fattens and breeds hogs to sell and earns about PHP 5,000 for each hog sold.
Liberty is now asking for a loan of PHP 24,000 to buy vaccines and medicines for the sustainability of her hogs. She hopes to keep ensuring she has healthy hogs to raise so she can sell them at a higher cost upon distribution. Liberty hopes to achieve a more profitable business and save for her children's education.
