Jomar is managing a bakeshop where he sells hot “pandesal” (a soft bread famous in the Philippines, suitable for breakfast). Aside from selling bread, he also sells balut ( a fertilized duck egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as street food in the Philippines at night). Through his simple businesses, he is able to provide for the needs of his family. With his dream to make his business grow, he would like to borrow from Kiva lenders the amount of PHP 5,000.

He is working hard so he can help his parents and provide a better standard of living for his own family. He is married to Joverlyn and a loving father to his child Gian Carlo.
