Evelyn is a 33-year-old married woman and a mother of four children from Jagna, Bohol. Evelyn runs a sari-sari, or variety store, business selling various goods and items to people in her neighborhood. She has been in this business for more than 15 years now.

Evelyn is asking for a loan to buy additional groceries to sell like rice, candies, soda, noodles, and canned goods, as well as soap and toiletries. This will help her attract more customers and cater to their needs, thus increasing her sales and profit.

In the future, Evelyn hopes to make her business a success and save money for the schooling of her children. Evelyn also wants to repay her loan on time so that she can take another one for the improvement of her business.

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 >>
