Myrna is 41 years old and a mother of four. They live in a rural community and make their living through farming. Together with her husband, they aim to uplift their status of living and continue sending their children to school so that they will become professionals in the future. For this reason, Myrna engaged in a hog-raising business to earn additional income. She wishes to improve the business and make it profitable, but she has limited capital.

Therefore, she is asking for an additional 15,000 PHP to buy additional piglets to raise, feeds, vitamins and vaccines for the maintenance of her hogs. Being a hard working mother, she believes that she will further improve the business someday.
