Julieta is 44 years old. She lives in Barangay Binarzang of Quiino, Isabela. She is married to Remigio who works as a farmer. They are blessed with five children: two already graduated from college and three are still studying. Because of her good service to her community and to God, she still remains as one of the councilors in their respective place. Julieta loves serving in her simple ways.
Julieta is again requesting for a loan of PHP4,000 for the maintenance of her hog raising business. She will use the loan to purchase feed supply and to buy one piglet. Hog raising has become of great help to her family. Julieta is hoping that the business will work longer through patience and assistance of Kiva lenders. Julieta also dreams to become successful in life for the welfare of her family.
