Cirila A. is a 48-year-old entrepreneur and mother in San Miguel Bohol, a poor community with livelihoods predominantly in agriculture and fishing.

She has a sari-sari (variety) store business and has been managing her business for a long time already. She started her business using her Php 3,000 savings. She wishes that, someday, she will turn her small store into a grocery where she could sell more goods and earn a bigger income for her family.

She would like to ask for a loan of Php 4,000 from CEVI. She will use the loan to buy additional stocks of merchandise to sell. The loan will help increase her income all the more.
