Criselda is 40 years old and married to Romeo, a local farmer. They have three children: Michael, 14; Jerico, 10; and Aprilyn, 7. They live simply in Barangay Parog - Parog Solana, Cagayan. In order to support their family's needs, Criselda and her husband help each other in their vegetable production and vending business. Romeo maintains the vegetable production and Criselda sells their harvested vegetables. She roams around their village to sell different kinds of vegetables. Their business provides them with an income that is being wisely budgeted by Criselda to keep up with her family's needs. She wants to borrow PHP 8,000 from Kiva lenders, which will improve their quality of life.
