49-year-old Noemi O. helps her husband manage a 4-hectare farm. She was a former barangay health worker in their barrio. But because she wants to focus more on their farming business and help her husband as well, she quit her job.

Now, she needs additional capital to buy fertilizer and chemicals. These are very important to ensure abundant and quality harvest on her farm.

CEVI is always helping farmers grow their livelihood in their village. That is why she chose CEVI because it does not only help people to avail loans but also gives education as well to grow their business.
