Mira G. is the wife of a farmer. She is 44 years old and has four children. Her husband, Angel G., is a rice grower. She also helps in growing rice, especially in land preparation. Most of the people in their location are engaged in the farming business. Their harvest goes to pay the expenses at home and to buy their other needs.
When she learned about CEVI's wide areas of services, she didn't think twice to apply for a loan. She would like to buy the fertilizer and herbicide needed on her farm. With the amount of Php 15,000, she hopes that she can double her harvest.
CEVI helps farmers grow and sustain more than their livelihood. CEVI provides them with not just loans but training and insurance coverage as well.
