Yolen A. is 44 years old and raises ducks. The family is in this business because her husband has the experience to run this kind of business. His friend has shared the secrets of how to handle this kind of business.

She is married to a barangay official and blessed with two children. The children are both in college and still need support from them. Her loan of P10, 000.00 will be used to purchase 60 ducks and 2 pigs that will help to support her children’s studies. The duck eggs will help to augment the family’s daily expenses.

Her dreams are to expand her duck raising business and to have a poultry supply. She also dreams that her children will finish their studies to have a better and a good life in the future.
