Soldie's story

Soldie D. is a sari-sari (variety) store owner. She is 46 years old and has three children who are studying. She started her business a year ago using her small savings. Until now, she was able to sustain her business and make it grow. When Soldie is not busy selling goods, she helps her husband, Marcelino, on their farm. They grow rice together, which they use to feed and support their family.

She is requesting a loan of Php 10,000 from CEVI, Kiva's partner. She will use the loan to buy additional merchandise to grow her business. She is also interested in venturing into some other line of business to augment their income.

CEVI is reaching out to more people, especially the poor, to start and have their own business. They give credit, training and insurance coverage to all their clients.
