Ma. Linda P. is a vegetable grower. Everyday she waters and cultivates the soil that surrounds her plants to make them grow healthy so she will be able to sell them all at quality cost. She is 48 years old and has three lovely children. Her husband is a rice grower. Together, they spend their lives growing crops to have enough food for the family. Farming is their life, and all the money that they earn comes from the proceeds they get after selling their crops. Aside from sending all of their children to college, they dream of having a stall where they can display all their produce. In this way, they will earn a bit bigger profit from their business.
Ma. Linda requested a loan from CEVI to purchase the needed fertilizer for their farm. Through this loan, she believes she will meet their plans of having a good harvest. She is also looking into some other possible income areas to contribute to the family income.
CEVI is happy about how Ma. Linda manages her business. Ma. Linda has made use of the credit assistance, training, and insurance coverage services that CEVI gives to all its clients.
