Cristina's story

Cristina lives a simple life with her family in San Dionisio, Iloilo. She is 34 years old, married and has two dependents.

She makes a living through selling seaweeds. She has been in this livelihood for many years. Meanwhile, she and her husband also have a farm where they grow corn plants.

She now asks for a loan through Kiva’s field partner CEV, (A Microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan for additional capital to buy seaweeds to sell. The other part of this loan will be used to buy seeds, pesticides and fertilizer for their farm.

Cristina aspires to augment their livelihood for a better means of living.
