However, she still needs capital to buy additional merchandise for her store. She is asking for a loan of Php 25,000 from Community Economic Ventures Inc. The loan will really help her achieve better income for her family.

She is happy with the services of CEVI. She still would like to access loans, training and insurance coverage as well from them.
