Marites's story

Marites and her husband are engaged in fishing to earn a living. They have been in this livelihood for many years. This couple has two dependents to support, and they are ages 18 and 15 years old.

She now asks for a loan through Kiva’s field partner CEV, (a microfinance NGO) in the Philippines to help them to buy a new engine and materials like plywood, boat glue, and nails that will be used to repair their fishing boat.

This loan will be a great help for them in their fishing activity, making them improve their catch. Marites aims to be successful for her children, as she dreams for them to finish their studies.
