Ronie's story

Rolie A. is forty years old. His wife's name is Gervacia, and they are blessed with six children: Jr - 17 years old, college student; Michael - 15 years old, fourth year high school; Carmina - 14 years old, high school student; Roger - 12 years old, elementary student; Jerome - 10 years old, elementary student; and their youngest, Jasmine - 2 years old. They live in the remote village of San Vicente Angadanan, Isabela. Rolie is doing his best to harvest a good crop of corn on his farm. He is asking to borrow PHP17,000 from Kiva lenders for his farming business. He will use the loan to buy fertilizers and a variety of corn seed.

Rolie's wife, Gervacia, has been engaged in managing a village store for almost three years. This business is maintained to help provide for their daily needs, for the education of their children, and also for some of their financial needs on the farm.

Rolie often goes into his fields to check and observe the development of his crops. He believes that in farming, hard work and patience is the best way to become more productive in the future.
