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

A loan helped to buy fruits and flowers to sell.

Arlina's story

Arlina is 49 years old and married with three children. She and her family live in a simple dwelling in Tubigon, Bohol. She earns a living through a buying and selling business. Thus, she buys and sells fruits and flowers.

Now she is asking for a loan of PHP 25,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI, a microfinance NGO in the Philippines. She will use this loan for additional capital to buy fruits and flowers to sell.

Arlina wants to improve this business in the future and become successful.
