A loan helped to provide additional capital to buy eggs.

Susana's story

Susana is a resident of Hilongos, Leyte. She is married and has an eight-year-old daughter. To earn an income, her husband works as a farmer, while Susana sells balut (a fertilized developing egg embryo that is boiled and eaten from the shell). She has been in this business for 15 years.

Now, she is asking for a loan of PHP 30,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEV (A Microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan as additional capital to buy eggs.

Susana wants to improve this business in the future and to become more productive.
