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


A loan helped to buy toiletries, noodles, eggs, seasonings, snacks food and drinks; the rest will be used to buy bamboo and engine for their fishing boat.


Emelia's story

Emelia lives in Concepcion, Iloilo. She is 55 years old and has one dependent. 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.

She is asking for a loan of PHP50,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEV (A Microfinance NGO) in the Philippines. She will use this loan to buy grocery items like toiletries, noodles, eggs, seasonings, snacks food and drinks. The rest will be used to buy bamboo and engine for their fishing boat.

Emelia wants to improve their livelihood in the future for a better means of living.
