Arlene A., age 49, raises pigs. She also manages a small sari-sari (variety) store in her neighborhood. She runs multiple businesses to meet the growing expenses in their home. She is now cleaning the barn. She intends to buy new piglets and start a piggery.

After learning about CEVI services, she would like to apply for a loan of Php 6,000 to buy pig feed and 2 piglets. She hopes that someday she won't have to apply for a loan to expand her business and that someday she will be able to achieve all her dreams for her children.

CEVI aims to help small businesses grow. Like Arlene, CEVI is reaching out communities to start businesses for their own families.

More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. 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 >>
