Carmen D. C. is a pig grower. She is 50 years old, married and has 8 loving children. She wants to grow her business even more. She and her husband have worked very hard to feed and clothe their family. She started raising pigs back in 1990, and the income that she gets from her pigs is what she uses to pay for school fees, especially tuition and the books for her children. In addition to pigs, she also owns a rice field. Her husband tills the land that she inherited from her parents. She has been a CEVI client for a long time already.

The purpose of her loan is to purchase feed. Knowing that feed is quite expensive nowadays, she needs assistance to support her business. Presently, she has 5 pigs and the loan that she is requesting will truly help her to increase the size of her piggery.

CEVI is reaching out to more people, especially the poor, to start and maintain their own source of livelihood. CEVI provides not just loans to all their clients, but training and insurance coverage as well.
