With only Php 5,000.00 as a starting capital, 29-year-old Julieta L. was able to open a small grocery store beside their house in Talibon, Bohol. She formerly had a fishing business, but it turned out that the income from her fishing venture could not suffice for her family’s needs. Although her husband is earning money as well, Julieta fears that in the future, they might not be able to send their three children to college if she lets him earn alone.

Her store is presently operating at the average. But Julieta refuses to remain in this status. She wants to expand the business, which made her decide to ask for this loan through the Community Economic Ventures, Inc. (CEVI). She is happy that she can not only use this service, but also meet with her fellow members during their cluster meetings.

Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
