Salvacion's story

Salvacion E. is a rice grower. She is 40 years old, married and has four children. Ever since she was a kid, she farmed rice to help her parents provide for all their family needs. Now that she has her own family, she would like to give her children a better future by sending all of them to school.


In addition to growing rice, she manages a small sari-sari (variety) store business. Her husband, Euvir E., is very supportive of her running a business.


She is asking a loan of Php 15,000 from CEVI, Kiva's parner. She will buy fertilizers and other farming necessities. The loan will greatly benefit her whole family because it will give them a better harvest.


CEVI is a non-profit organization organized to respond the needs of small entrepreneurs. CEVI is reaching out to more people, especially the poor, to help them start and have their own livelihoods. It provides not just credit but also training and insurance coverage.
