This is Rodolfo, 32, a resident of Manila, Philippines. He is married to Sheryll, and father of two children. At this time, he is working hard to be able to send his children all the way through college. Like most Filipino parents, Rodolfo believes that a college diploma is the best inheritance parents could leave to their children.

Rodolfo operates an internet café business. There is more need now than before for services like this as customers’ demand increases. His main patrons are students who require his services for school requirements. He also has people who need to rent computers for business purposes like writing a resume or composing office documentation; as well as people who just love to surf the net and engage in social networking. He earns a minimum of 500 PHP in profits every day.

To help him continue to operate his business, Rodolfo is requesting a loan of 50, 000 PHP. He will utilize the loan to buy additional computer parts and accessories needed for his business. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business.

Rodolfo dreams of being able to give his children a good and high quality education through all his hard work on his business. He faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship members to share stories of work every week.

Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
