According to Magielyn, she has to prioritize for the future of her children. Her husband is Mario V. and together with their children, her family happily lives in Barangay Bonfal Proper, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya. She makes a lot of sacrifices to support the studies of their children to give them a better future someday. Despite their financial difficulties in life, they still have the desire to give their children the best education possible.

Furniture making is a popular source of income in the village. Her husband used to work a local business making tables, chairs, cabinets and even sala set. This gave them the idea to open up their own furniture business. Because they lack financial capital to expand their business, Magielyn is seeking the assistance of KIVA lenders.

She is requesting a loan of PHP 20,000 for their business. Magielyn hopes to purchase more furniture materials and wood needed for the continuous operation of their business.
