Mercedita's story

Mercedita is 41 years old, married, and has three dependents. For the past years, she and her husband run a small family farm to earn a living. They grow rice, corn, and vegetable plants. They have been in this livelihood for many years to support the family.

Now, she asks for a loan of PHP 21,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI-Philippines for additional capital to buy seeds, pesticides, and fertilizer for their plants.

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

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