Crispina is 59 years old and from the town of San Miguel, Bohol. She is married with three grown children.

For the past ten years Crispina has operated a sari-sari, or a small general store, in her community. She sells grocery items like rice, canned goods, toiletries and seasoning. Her business earns her an average monthly income of 5,000 PHP.

Crispina is applying for a 12,000 PHP loan from CEVI to buy more sugar and food for her shop, as she always runs out of these items. Her loan would mean a lot as far as growing her business.

Crispina hopes to see her business thrive so she can save and live in comfort.

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 >>
