Lucia's story

Lucia is 60 years old and married. She has one child who is now an adult. For the past years, she and her husband have 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 12,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI-Philippines for additional capital to buy pesticides and fertilizer for their plants.

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

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