A loan of $325 helped farming supplies.


Marina's story

Marina said, “Success is something to be work for; not to be waited for.” She took this as her inspiration in carrying out her plans and ambitions in life. She aims to become successful so she can provide the best education for her children. She is married to Alex and they live in Manamtam Bambang, Nueva Vizcaya.


Like most of the other residents, farming is their main source of livelihood. They plant rice and vegetables as their major crops which is very appropriate for the weather in Nueva Vizcaya. With their patience and sacrifices, they have been able to gain an average net income of 15,000 Philippine Pesos per harvest. They use it for their household’s needs and for the education of their two children. They want to increase their profit by maintaining their farming business. For this, Marina is requesting for a loan of 15,000 pesos from the Kiva lenders. She will use the loan to purchase farm supplies they need.
