Despite the hardship of living, Genoveva and her husband are still doing their best and are never disgusted with the kind of life their family was into. Working hand-in-hand towards the improvement of their living status is their way of battling against life's difficulties to give their family a better living, especially their children, by fulfilling their education.
Genoveva is 41 years old and has three school-age children. She manages a hog-raising business, while her husband is into upland farming. To improve her business, Genoveva is asking for an additional loan of PHP 10,000 to buy hog feed, vitamins, and additional pigs to raise, so that her piggery will be more progressive.
Optimistically, Genoveva will able to improve her business through hard work, strong determination, and financial support from the lenders, of course. She hopes that they will give her a chance.
