Billy has a duck raising business to earn more income for his family. He aims to improve his business and increase his income to continue sending his children to college. He plans to raise more ducks to lay eggs for sale, but he lack the necessary materials.
He is asking for a loan amounting to PHP 14,000 to buy duck feeds, nets, a tray and a tent needed in raising ducks. He believes that someday he will make more improvements in the business as he continues to work hard and strive harder.
