Lucena is 53 years old, and is a hog grower living in a peaceful village. She has been in her business for two years now and is hoping for improvement on her hog disposals. Aside from her hog growing business, she also sells vegetables to generate additional income.

Lucena would like to raise healthy hogs, but has insufficient funds. That is why she is asking for additional capital of PHP 10,000 to buy feed and vaccines for her hogs’ maintenance.

In the future, Lucena hopes to maintain healthy hogs so she could dispose of them at a higher cost.
