Mercedita's story

Mercedita is a resident of Lemery, Iloilo. She is married and has three dependents. For the past years, she and her husband have run a small family farm to earn a living. They grow corn and rice plants. They have been in this livelihood for many years to support the family.

Now, Mercedita asks for a loan of PHP 35,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI-Philippines, to buy seeds, pesticides, and fertilizer for their plants.

Indeed, this loan will be a great help for them, allowing them to have a bountiful harvest. Mercedita wants to augment their livelihood in the future for a better means of living.
