Lilia D. is 61 years old and a widowed mother of four. She lives in Tumpagon, Cagayan de Oro City, Southern Philippines. All of her children are married. At her age, Lilia still works hard to help provide the needs of the family of her youngest son and her two grandchildren who stay with her. She runs a sari–sari store (variety store) and food stall to earn an income.

Unfortunately, the income from those businesses is not enough to provide her household's basic needs. Therefore, she wants to venture in the poultry business. She needs financial assistance amounting to PHP 11,000 ($250). This will be her third loan cycle with Kiva partner HSPFI. She dreams of sending her grandchildren to college.
