Lynditha's story

Lynditha is a fifty-year-old woman from Barili town. She earns a living through the retail sales of purified drinking water. She has been doing this for five years now. She is married and has no children.

Lynditha is asking for a loan from CEVI. It will be used to invest in more gallons of mineral water. Through this fund, her sales will continue to improve and enable her to roll out her capital, and thus be able to set aside some savings and repay her obligation on time.
