Emelia's story

Emelia is a resident of Concepcion, Iloilo. She is 54 years old, married and has four children. To earn an income, she and her family have had a fishing business for many years. She also runs a small store for additional income.

Now Emelia asks for a loan of PHP 45,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEV. She will use this loan to buy bamboo, nails and an engine for their fishing boat. The other part of this loan will be used to buy assorted groceries for her store.
