Larry's story

Larry manages two hectares (5 acres) of corn and rice field. He is requesting a PHP 28,000 loan from Kiva lenders to purchase agricultural inputs needed on his farm. He will also utilize some of the amount to pay for farm laborers who will help him during the planting season.

Larry is 41 years old and has five children: Rosemarie - 17 years old, a graduate in high school and who now works as a saleslady in Manila; the same with Ronalyn - 16 years old; Rico Yan - 14 years old is a high school sophomore; Ronel - 9 years old, in grade school; and Ruben - 1 year old.

With the assistance of his wife, Wilma May, Larry keeps struggling for the welfare of his family. They are living at Barangay San Vicente of Angadanan, Isabela, a rural and distant place.
