Sustaining her 3 children through pig raising

Loving the work of our Philippines based partners – the Honor 1000 Movement. They’ll impact the lives of 2,500 women with small business loans this year – that means lots of children stabilized in school.

With the increasing demand of native pigs in her community, this mother is grateful that her first loan from Honor 1000 Micro-Finance Program enabled her to add two female pigs to her business. This increases her expected sales and as well as her motivation to grow her small business. With the help of her husband’s farming, they are determined to provide for their family and to see their three children graduate school.
