Magelyn's story

Magelyn is already 44 years old. She is married to Melvito who happens to be a "Barangay" treasurer in their village. They are blessed with four children of whom two are still studying. Their family lives on the mountainside of Capellan. Magelyn manages her direct-selling business in which she invites most of her neighbors and friends to place their orders from her Avon, Natasha and MSE brochures.

To further increase her credit line with these companies, she is requesting a loan of PHP 18,000 from Kiva lenders. Magelyn also wants to help her husband to purchase other necessary items for their farm, like fertilizers, pesticides and so on, by increasing her commissions from her direct-selling business. They are hoping to have development and growth both in her direct-selling business and in their agriculture business managed by her husband. They also hope to give their children a complete education, especially for those who are interested in studying.
