Virginia is 55 years old, married, and has seven children. Two of her children are in school.
Virginia is in the agricultural business of raising pigs in the Philippines. She requested an 11000 PHP loan through Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation in order to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs. Virginia has been raising pigs for eight years now and has borrowed six times in the past from NWTF to sustain the business.
In the future, Virginia would like to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
