A loan helped to buy a new engine for her fishing boat.

Catalina's story

Catalina is 52 years old, married and has one dependent. To earn an income, she and her husband do fishing. They have been in this livelihood for 12 years.

Now she asks for a loan of PHP 30,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI (a Microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy a new engine for their fishing boat.

Catalina aspires to augment this livelihood in the future for a better means of living.
