Leonides's story

Leonides is a resident of Calape, Bohol. She is 47 years old and married. Her husband is a farmer and she helps him with generating an income through making and selling handicrafts. She has been in this business for 11 years now.

Leonides is taking advantage of the financial services offered by Kiva’s field Partner CEVI, (A Microfinance NGO) in the Philippines by requesting a loan that will promote safe water and proper hygiene. She needs this loan in order to build a toilet. The funds will be used to buy building materials like GI sheet, rebar, cement, sand, gravel, concrete blocks, PVC and toilet bowl. The rest of this loan will be used to pay for labor cost.

As a result of this loan, Leonides and her family will have a safe and comfortable toilet facility.
