Icy Marie's story

Icy Marie is a married woman and has a 12-year-old daughter. She and her family live a simple dwelling in Hilongos, Leyte. Many years ago, she started her food-selling business to get extra income while her husband works abroad as an OFW.

Now she asks for a loan of PHP 10,000 through Kiva’s field partner CEV (a microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use it to buy food ingredients such as cooking oil, bread crumbs, and chicken.

Through this loan, Icy Marie will probably reach her goal, which is to have a better means of living.
