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

Juanita's story

Juanita is a resident of Ajuy, Iloilo. She is 64 years old and married. Her husband works as a carpenter to earn an income, while Juanita sells dried fish. She has been in this livelihood for more than 10 years.

Now she asks for a loan of PHP 32,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI, a microfinance NGO in the Philippines. She will use this loan for additional capital to buy dried fish. The other part of this loan will be used to buy piglets, feed and vitamins. Precisely, Juanita also has a hog-raising business.

She wants to improve this business in the future and become productive.
