Melanie's story

Melanie is 28 years old with one dependent. She lives in a simple dwelling in Ajuy, Iloilo where she sells barbecue to make an income. This has been her livelihood for many years.

Now she is asking for a loan of PHP10,000 through Kiva’s field partner CEVI, a microfinance NGO in the Philippines. She will use the loan as additional capital to buy food ingredients such as pork, chicken, frozen foods and spices.

Through this loan, Melanie will hopefully improve her business and become more productive.
