Benida is 51 years old and has four school-aged children. She and her husband aim to improve their living conditions in order to continue sending their children to school. In this regard, Benida engages in the hog-raising business to generate income. Due to the high cost of commodities and school fees, she planned to acquire more piglets to raise, but she has inadequate capital. For this reason, she is asking for additional capital of PHP 35,000 to buy feed, vitamins and additional piglets to raise. She believes that her loan will be granted in order to make her business grow.
