Lorelyn is engaged in hog-raising business. She is married to F. and is a good mother to her children. Her family lives in Barangay San Jose in Santiago City. She is happy that God blessed her with a family that gets along well together because she believes that good relationships are an important part of a successful life.
The next step that she wants to pursue is expanding her business. However, due to a lack of financial capital, Lorelyn is now asking Kiva lenders for a loan of PHP 5,000 for the continuous growth of her hog-raising business. The amount will be used to buy feed and additional piglet. She hopes that Kiva lenders will grant her request.
