Cayetana raises hogs to earn a living. She is 56 years old with three children. She and her husband separated but it didn’t stop her from continuing with her life. Her youngest child is taking up Electronics and Communications Engineering at a university in her town. She works hard to have him graduate this year.

Cayetana also sought the help of CEVI, an MFI (micro-finance institute), to support her business. She says that its program is a big help to her hog-raising business. She is now applying for a loan of Php 14,000, which she will use to buy additional piglets and feeds. She is hopeful to earn more so she is able to pay for her son’s university fees.

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 >>
