Yemma's story

Yemma is a married woman and has one dependent. She and her family live a simple dwelling in Sara, Iloilo. To earn an income, she runs a hog-raising business. She has been in this business for many years. Meanwhile, her husband works as a farmer.

She now requested the amount of PHP 22,000 through Kiva’s field partner CEVI (a microfinance NGO) in the Philippines, some of which she will use to buy feed. The rest of the loan will be used to buy food ingredients. Precisely, Yemma also has a food-selling business for additional income. She wants to augment her business in the future for her child’s education.
