With the long period of time that he has devoted to his corn field, he has been able to improve their way of living. He is happily married to Marissa and they have three under school-aged children.

Noly has successfully paid back his previous loan. At this time, he is asking for new loan amount of PHP50,000 which will be use to buy farm inputs and to pay for hired labor tol plant and prepare the corn field plot. He hopes for continuous access to the financial services of KIVA lenders through ASKI. He hopes to maintain his farming business in order for him to gain more profits, which will enable him to keep producing healthy corn crops. In this way, he can sell his yield to buyers who can pay a higher price.

In the future, Noly expects more yields to harvest, so that he can send his children to a higher level of education and provide for the needs of his family.
