Mae's story

Mae is a resident of Concepcion, Iloilo. She is 59 years old, married and has three dependents. To earn an income, she and her family do fishing. They have been in this livelihood for many years. Aside from fishing, she also buys and sells dried fish for additional income.

Now, she asks for a loan of PHP 20,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEV (a microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy fishing nets and bamboo.

Mae wants to expand this livelihood in the future for her children’s education. She wants them to finish their studies.
