Juanita's story

Juanita is 63 years old and lives a simple life with her family in Ajuy, Iloilo.

She makes a living through selling dried fish (client's photo shows boxes of dried fish). She has been in this business for many years. Meanwhile, her husband works as a fisherman to support the family.

Juanita 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 dried fish. The other part of this loan will be used to buy feed for her hog-raising business.

Juanita aspires to augment her livelihood in the future for a better means of living.
