Virginia S. is 36 years old and has been selling fruit and vegetables for almost five years now. She is married to Ramil, a farmer in their village. They are blessed with three children: Ryan Vincent, 4; Cris Jhon Paul, 3; and the youngest who is just an infant.

Ramil plants vegetables in their fields while Virginia sells their harvested yield. Having a farm where they can harvest vegetables is very important to the couple thus they want to sustain its productivity. For this reason, Virginia is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders amounting to 5,000 PHP. She will use the loan to buy more vegetable seed and fertilizer so that they can harvest more yield.
