From the Kiva website: "Julieta, 42, is from Dingalan, Aurora (Philippines). She is married and blessed with one son, Alvin. Even with only one child, Julieta and her husband find it difficult to support him financially because they are low-income. Julieta wants to borrow a PHP 200,000 education loan from Kiva lenders to pay for her son's tuition fees. Alvin is earning a B.S. in electrical engineering. Alvin wants to finish college in order to achieve personal success and help his parents out of poverty."
