Melenia's story

Melenia lives in Concepcion, Iloilo. She is 62 years old, married and has eight children.

To earn an income, she and her family do fishing. They have been in this livelihood for many years. Aside from fishing, she also runs a small store for additional income.

Now she asks for a loan of PHP 40,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI (a microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy fishing net and plywood to repair their boat. The rest of the loan will be used to buy assorted grocery for their store.

Melenia wants to improve her livelihood in the future for her children’s education.
