Susan's story

Susan is from the town of Concepcion, Iloilo. She is 58 years old and has three dependents. She and her family earn a living through fishing. They have been in this livelihood for many years to support the needs of their children and provide food for the family. Aside from fishing, Susan also sells dried fish for additional income.

She now asks for a loan through Kiva’s field partner CEVI, (A Microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy plywood, a boat, nails, and a new engine for their fishing boat. This loan will be great for their fishing boat for them to continue their fishing activity.

Susan aspires to improve their livelihood in the future and have better lives.
