Emeliana earns a living through her hog raising business. She lives with her family in the town of Cortes, Bohol. She has been in the business for more than five years now. Emeliana also sells snack foods to the people in her place.
Emeliana is asking for a loan to buy additional piglets to raise and feed for the pigs and additional ingredients for her food vending like flour, sugar and milk. Through this loan, she will be able to improve her business as well as her income.
Emeliana has hopes of saving money to reinvest in the same ventures and to repay her loan on time.
