Epifania's story

Epifania is a resident of Bato, Leyte. She is 63 years old and married. To earn an income, she buys and sells sea shells. She has been in this livelihood for many years.

Now she asks for a loan of 20,000 PHP through Kiva’s field partner, CEV (A Microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan for additional capital to buy sea shells.

Epifania wants to augment this livelihood in the future for a better standard of living.
