Alona's story

Alona and her husband are engaged in fishing to earn a living. They have been in this livelihood for many years. They have two dependents.

Alona now asks for a loan through Kiva’s field partner CEV, a microfinance NGO in the Philippines, to help them to buy materials like plywood, nails, paint, lumber, and boat glue to repair their fishing boat. This loan will be of great help to them in restoring their boat.

In the future, Alona aims to augment their livelihood for her children’s education, as she wants them to finish their studies.
