Marlene's story

Marlene and her husband work in the fishing business in order to earn a living. They have been in this livelihood for many years. They have two dependents to support.

Marlene is now requesting a Kiva loan from CEVI, a microfinance NGO in the Philippines. The loan will enable her to buy materials such as plywood, adhesive, nails, and paint for repairing a secondhand boat. This will be a great boost to her fishing business, which will also help improve her catch.

Marlene aims to improve her business and become more productive.
