Evelyn is a native of Cagayan. She lives in Barangay Palao Solana, Cagayan, with her family. She is now 53 years old and has six children; only the youngest is still studying in high school. She hopes to give her daughter a better education so she can someday become successful to her chosen career.


Evelyn manages a general store business. She is glad that her business helps her provide the immediate needs of her family. At present she would like to borrow PHP5,000 from Kiva. She will use the loan to purchase more merchandise, especially products that are in demand in her village.


Aside from managing her business, Evelyn is also very responsible in keeping their house clean and providing the needs of her family. She hopes that through the continuous support of the lenders to her business, her store will continue to be profitable and that she will be able to save enough money to develop her house and make it concrete.
