Motorcycle transport is the primary source of income of Marivic and her husband, Crispin, in the village of Larion Alto, Tuguegarao City. Aside from this, her husband also manages their farm while Marivic sells cosmetics in their village to earn additional income.
For the continuous development of their transport business, Marivic is requesting a loan of PHP 10,000 from Kiva lenders. This will be used for the repair and maintenance of their motorcycle that they use for their transport business so as to ensure the safety of their customers. Marivic hopes that her loan request will be granted for it will also assist her in her retailing business.
The couple are blessed with three children. The eldest is already a college graduate while the youngest is still studying. The couple hopes that their youngest child will also receive a college degree.
