Carmen C., 52 years old, is a rice farmer in Norala, South Cotabato. She started her business in 1990 and is still tilling her farm hoping that she will be able to have an abundant harvest.

When she started farming, Carmen said that it was really difficult, especially since the farm needed enough capitalization to grow rice. She was happy that she joined CEVI and was able to get access to small loans.

Now, Carmen would like to apply for a loan of Php 12,000 from Community Economic Ventures, Inc. She will use the loan to buy farm supplies to grow her crops well.
