Nieves's story

Nieves is 61 years old and lives in a simple dwelling in Concepcion, Iloilo. To earn an income, she runs a hog-raising business. She has been in this business for many years.

Now she has requested a loan of PHP 11,000 through Kiva’s field partner CEVI (a microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy feed. The rest of the loan will be used to buy grocery items, as Nieves also has a store for additional income.

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