Cristina's story

Cristina is already 56 years old. She is married to Paulino who is 68 years old and works as a simple farmer in their village. They are gifted with three children and they are so grateful because all of their children were able to finish their college education and are now working. Sometimes, their children assist them financially but Cristina does not want to depend too much on their children for their needs.



Cristina manages a village store and sells vegetables. She is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders amounting to PHP 15,000 as additional capital to further improve her simple enterprise hoping to eventually have an increase in income. She also wants her hog-raising business to be stable by maintaining their feed supply. She really wants to improve her sales to create a good income.
