Emma raises and fattens hogs for sale and also uses her backyard for planting vegetables that she sells in her community. She also loves cooking so she decided to earn from what she loves doing: she used part of their house to display cooked food that her neighbors and passersby buy from her.
Emma joined CEVI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and her ability to engage in business activities. She is requesting a loan of 5,000 PHP which will be used to purchase piglets to raise and sell and will also buy ingredients for her cooking business. This loan will be her first from CEVI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve her business.
