Arlene's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy more fish to sell.

Arlene's story

Arlene lives in a simple dwelling in Sara, Iloilo with her family. She is 27 years old and married. To earn an income, she buys and sells fresh fish. She has been in this business for a couple of months, as she wished to improve her family’s livelihood and become successful.

Arlene is now asking for a loan of PHP 10,000 through Kiva’s field partner CEV, a microfinance NGO in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy more fish to sell.
