Lourdes
44-year-old Lourdes C. is from the town of Banga. She is married and has two school-aged children. To make a living, Lourdes owns and operates a business raising livestock. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from raising pigs for fattening and sale. Lourdes has been engaged in her business for more than five years and earns approximately 1500 PHP a month for these activities.

Lourdes joined CEVI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and her ability to engage in business activities. Lourdes has successfully repaid a previous loan from CEVI. Lourdes is requesting a new loan of 15000 PHP, which will be used to purchase baby livestock to raise and sell in the future. This loan will be the eighth loan taken out by Lourdes from CEVI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to pay her children's tuition fees.

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 >>
