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

A loan helped to purchase a toilet and materials like cement, doors, and sand and pay labor fees.

Ester's story

Ester manages a sari-sari (variety) store to earn a living. Her income has relied on the retail sales of basic commodities for more than ten years now. Her husband engaged in farming to meet the family's daily ends.

Her bathroom wall was made up of light materials and she wanted to have a septic tank improvement as well. Upon learning that CEVI provides financial services for water and sanitation, she immediately decided to request a loan, which was used to purchase a toilet; materials like cement, doors, and sand; and to pay labor fees.

Ester is grateful to obtain such a loan, which enables the entire family to enjoy the comfortable toilet that they may avail themselves of in the coming months.
