"So far, my rice farm has been running smoothly, and I am grateful that it helps my family a lot," shares Julie M., a 45-year-old married woman with five children. She wants to have a happy home. Her children's education is one of her top priorities. She wants them to experience wellness in life. She just started preparing her land for the planting of rice crops. She said that she needs supplies for it. As a new member of CEVI, she now has access to its program. So, she requested a loan of 6000 PHP. With that amount, she can buy seeds, fertilizer, and other needed farm supplies.
