Merlyn's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a fishing boat.

Merlyn's story

Merlyn is 60 years old and has one dependent. To earn an income, she and her husband do fishing. They have been in this livelihood for many 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 fishing boat that they can use in their fishing activity.

Merlyn aspires to improve this livelihood in the future and become productive.
