Benita's story

Benita is 39 years old and is married to Martin. They live happily in Annafunan in East Tuguegarao. Benita helps her husband, who is a tricycle driver, by raising hogs. They are blessed with a happy family and they are hoping to provide for the education of their three children. Their children are currently in high school and elementary level.

To further assist her husband, Benita would like to borrow PHP 19,000 from Kiva to maintain her hog raising business. This is her way of helping her husband provide for the financial needs at home and for the education of her children. She dreams of becoming a successful hog raiser in the future. She believes that, somehow, she will be able to improve their poor living conditions if they work harder. Benita also added that patience is a virtue, so she waits for her turn to become successful.
