A loan of $125 helped additional capital.


Janet's story

"What you plant is what you reap," said Janet P., who is now 28 years old and already a mother. She lives with her family in Barangay Tuao North Bagabag, Nueva Vizcaya. High school is her highest educational attainment since she got married at an early age. Her husband, James P., is now 26 years old and is working as a farmer. It is difficult for them to manage financially because neither of them has a stable job, but with the help of their parents, they survive.


At present, her husband is also sometimes hired as a house carpenter when not busy with farming; however, his income is not sufficient to finance all the needs of his family. In this regard, Janet decided to engage in a hog raising business to help her husband in generating income for their family needs. Janet wanted to borrow a loan from Kiva lenders amounting to PHP5,000 as additional working capital for hog raising. She hopes to have a productive business in order to provide her family with a secure and comfortable living someday. She hopes that lenders will lend her the funds she is requesting for the improvement of her newly opened piggery business.
