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

A loan helped to purchase additional goods for the store and also farm equipment.

Arline's story

Arline hails in the town of Tabontabon. She manages a shop and sells siopao (which is the Filipino version of a steamed bun, dough filled with savory meat and cooked by steam). She is a mother of a 15-year old daughter. In addition, she also sells basic goods, which at the moment are in high demand. She also owns a field and grows rice.

To boost capital, she has decided to avail a loan from Kiva's field partner, CEVI. She will use it to purchase additional goods for the store and farm equipment. In the future, Arline would like to expand her business to be successful in order to support her family.
