Since technology is becoming more advanced, Romeo is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 from Kiva lenders to buy the necessary materials for them to upgrade their computers. This loan will enable the business to grow and become more stable for the future of their children. Romeo is hoping that his request will be granted.
