Rita's story

Rita is 57 years old and lives a simple dwelling in Concepcion, Iloilo. She and her husband earn a living through fishing. They have been sustaining each day through this livelihood for many years.

She is now requesting for a loan through Kiva’s field partner CEV (a Microfinance NGO) in the Philippine, to buy a fishing boat that they can use in their fishing activity.

That way, she and her husband will be able to improve their catch and uplift their earnings for a better means of living.
