Fritzie E. raises and sells pigs. She is married and has two children. Before, she handled a tutorial class. She stopped teaching and decided to venture into this kind of business so many years ago now. She shared her dreams: she said that she wants to have her own butcher shop in the town. Now, she uses her house as her own stall where she sells meat to her neighbors.
She would like to apply for a loan of Php 18,000 from Community Economic Ventures Inc. (CEVI) and will use the loan to buy pig feed. Part of the loan will also be used to buy meat for sale.
Up to now, she has been connected to CEVI’s credit program. She receives loans, training and insurance coverage from CEVI.
