Helen, 49, has 1-hectare rice field and a sari-sari store. Aside from that, she also raises pigs. At first, she borrowed money from other dealers to have capital but she only profits very little because of high interest. When Community Economic Ventures, Inc. came, it made it easier for her to secure additional capital and her business is progressing.

She is currently requesting a loan of 15,000 Php. This will allow her to buy farm supplies and groceries. She works as much as she can to support her family and her 3 children.
