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


A loan helped to buy fishing materials and the rest is for additional capital to buy assorted fish and squid.


Shirly's story

Shirly is 48 years old and has one dependent. Her husband works as a fisher to earn an income, while she buys and sells squid and fish to earn an income as well.

Now Shirly asks for a loan of PHP 35,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI (a microfinance NGO), in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy fishing materials and the rest is for additional capital to buy assorted fish and squid.

Shirly aspires to improve her business in the future in order to have a better quality of life. She also dreams for her child to finish its educational studies.
