Meriame's story

Meriame is 46 years old and lives in Concepcion, Iloilo. She is married and has five children. 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 15,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI (a microfinance NGO), in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy a fishing net and a boat that they can use in their fishing activity.

Meriame aspires to improve this livelihood in the future for her children’s education. She wants them to finish their studies.
