A loan of $100 helped to buy additional stocks of merchandise for her sari-sari store.


Cirila's story

Cirila A. is a 48-year-old entrepreneur and mother in San Miguel Bohol, a poor community with livelihoods predominantly in agriculture and fishing.

She has a sari-sari (variety) store business and has been managing her business for a long time already. She started her business using her Php 3,000 savings. She wishes that, someday, she will turn her small store into a grocery where she could sell more goods and earn a bigger income for her family.

She would like to ask for a loan of Php 4,000 from CEVI. She will use the loan to buy additional stocks of merchandise to sell. The loan will help increase her income all the more.

CEVI is reaching out to people to enable them to start and have a business. It provides not just loans but training and insurance coverage as well.
