Cresencia A., 34 years old, is a native of Getafe, Bohol. She is married and is the mother of four. Her former experience as a saleslady has somewhat inspired her to start her own business. With PHP 6,000.00 as starting capital, she was able to establish a small store of goods. Along with this, she also has a videoke (singing) machine and computer games to meet her neighbors’ short time leisure.

Since she wanted to expand her business, Cresencia applied for a PHP 12,000.00 loan from Community Economic Ventures Inc. (CEVI), a growing micro-finance institution in the Philippines. This amount will be used to purchase more goods for the store.

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 >>
