“Love your work to make you succeed” is the quotation shared by Salvador N. Jr. who resides in Barangay Sto. Domingo, Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya. Due to financial difficulties, he was not able to pursue his studies in college. He helps his parents earn a living for their survival.
Salvador is married to Jocelyne N. and they are blessed with two children who are presently studying in the secondary and elementary levels of education. Salvador and his wife help each other to earn an income to support the studies of their children because they want them to become successful in the future.
The couple cultivates their parcel of farmland twice a year by planting rice and vegetable crops. Since they have inadequate capital, Salvador is requesting additional farming capital of PHP 18,000 from Kiva lenders for the maintenance of their crop production. He wishes to generate support from the lenders and promises to pay back the loan at the right time.
Salvador works hard on the farm and he is patiently supporting his family through his farming. He also hopes to give his family a progressive standard of living in the future.
