Levita Gina
Levita Gina is 38 years-old and happily married to Elmer. They are blessed with four children: Emmanuel, 9; Giboy, 8; Eraño, 4 and Ediboy, 2. They are living in the peaceful village of Jurisdiction, Amulung, Cagayan.

Levita and her husband decided to invest into a junk shop business after they got married. They collect and buy scrap materials like used bottles, old newspapers, boxes, plastic bottles and other recyclable materials that they can resell at higher prices. In order to expand their business, she would like to request a loan amount of PHP 15,000 from KIVA lenders. This amount will really help her to improve her business.

Despite the hardship they are encountering in their business, Levita said that with their deep faith in God, they can fight life's challenges.
