Ermelinda's story

Ermelinda is from Baybay, Leyte. She is 50 years old and has one dependent.

To earn an income, she runs a sari-sari (variety) store, selling basic commodities. She has been in this business for many years.

Now she asks for a loan of PHP 40,000 through Kiva’s field partner CEV (a microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy soft drinks, liquor and assorted grocery items for her store.

Ermelinda wants to improve this business in the future and become successful.
