Nerissa's story

Nerissa is 59 years old and married. For the past years, she and her husband run a small family farm to earn a living. They grow rice plants. They have been in this livelihood for many years to support the family.

Now, she asks for a loan of PHP 16,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI-Philippines, to buy seeds and fertilizer for their plants.

Indeed, this loan will be a great help for them, thus, allowing them to have a bountiful harvest.

Nerissa wants to augment their livelihood in the future for a better means of living.
