Avelino is a hog raiser in a village in Cabisera 27 San Antonio Ilagan, Isabela. He would like to request another loan from Kiva lenders amounting to PHP12000 to further help him raise his hogs. He will use the loan to buy at least two sacks of feed and for the family's needs at home.
Aside from working as a hog raiser, he also works on his farm. He must work hard so he can provide for the needs of his family. He hopes and prays that he will again be entrusted with the loan he is requesting.
Avelino is married to Constancia. His four children are: Gemalyn, who already graduated from her teaching course and is now a teacher; the twins, Geraldine and Mary Jane; and Rommel, who just finished the elementary level. His daughter Geraldine wants to pursue her studies in college and become a teacher like Gemalyn. Because of his daughter’s dream, Avelino strives to support her life's ambition, and is encouraged to work harder and to overcome the difficulties of life.
