Rhodora's story

Rhodora is from Concepcion, Iloilo. She and her husband earn a living through fishing. They have been sustaining each day through this livelihood for many years. This couple has four dependents.

She is now requesting a loan through Kiva’s field partner, CEV, a microfinance NGO in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy plastic screen, bamboo and nylon (string) that will be used to make a fish trap.
