"For now, I am busy maintaining a 1-hectare farm. I never owned it. I was just there taking care of everything including the plants and the owner will just pay me or give me a share from the harvest. But I never stop dreaming that someday I will be able to own even a small parcel of land. To provide for the growing needs of our family", says Liway M., 34-year-old mother of four children.
She is asking for a loan of Php 4,000 from CEVI. She will use the loan to purchase foliar fertilizer, seeds and insecticide. The loan will really help her improve the harvest and income as well.
CEVI gives not just loans. They also give training and insurance coverage.
