Delia grows rice for a living. She and her husband are both farmers. They cultivate their land to plant and harvest rice crops. They sell their harvest to rice traders.
Delia is a mother of 5 children. Her eldest child is 18 years old, while the youngest is only 6. All her five children go to school. Delia said she and her husband work hard to sustain their family, especially the children's education. It is their dream to see their children succeed in life.
Delia joined CEVI to gain access to financial services. She is requesting a loan of 8000 PHP, which she will use to buy seeds, fertilizers and other farm inputs. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to pay the tuition fees of her children.
