Virgilia's story

Virgilia is a 37-year-old farmer. She owns rice paddies and grows rice. She resides in Carmen, Bohol. She is married with three children ages 4, 5 and 6 years old respectively. Aside from farming, she raises and sells hogs. Her husband has also an income to help defray the family's daily expenses. For quite a period of time she has been catering mostly to neighbors and local settlers in her neighborhood. She faces challenges in her livelihood, such as the lack of capital and the high cost of farm maintenance. Virgilia has decided to avail the loan from Kiva to buy fertilizer and pig feed. This way, it could help her boost and improve the yield of her farm. It will enable her to provide for her family needs and continue to expand her farm to become more sustainable in the future.
