"After I resigned my previous job, I got married and we had three children. On the same date, I also started to grow seaweed. The income that I get from my farm has helped a lot in providing the needs of my wife as well as my children," says Wilfredo T., an entrepreneur and father of three children.
He would like to ask for a loan of Php 25,000 from CEVI. He will use the loan to buy additional seedlings for his seaweed farm. The loan will really help him improve their family income.
CEVI aims to help small businesss to grow. It provides not just loans but training and insurance coverage as well.
