Erlinda's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy more coconut wine to sell.

Erlinda's story

Erlinda is 53 years old and a mother of two children. She and her family live in Matalom, Leyte. She makes a living through buying and selling coconut wine known as “tuba” by locals. She has been in this business for many years.

Now, Erlinda has requested a loan of PHP 10,000 through KIVA’s field partner, CEVI (A Microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan for additional capital to buy more coconut wine to sell.

Erlinda wants to improve this business in the future for her children’s education.
