At the age of 56, Rosie stays at home and manages her sari-sari store. She is married to Expedito, who is a tricycle driver. The couple usually earns PHP 6,000 a month, which is only enough for their daily household expenses.

With that, Rosie is asking for a PHP 200,000 loan from Kiva lenders to pay the tuition fee of her child. Expero Sien is 16 years of age and will be attending college. Being the only child, Expero Sien wants to finish college for she is the only one who will support her parents when they get old and can no longer work. Aside from that she is very optimistic that through her diploma she can alleviate her family's poverty. With that Expero Sien hopes that lenders will grant her mother’s requested loan amount.
