48-year-old Lorna E. owns a small rice field in their village. She has four children who are all studying and a husband, Leopoldo E., who manages their farm. It was in the year 1980 that they started farming. They have been doing the same thing because they are able to earn a better income from growing rice, which helped sustain their family for years now.

However, she is currently needing additional capital for her business. She would like to ask for a loan worth Php 10,000 to buy fertilizer and chemicals. She hopes that by making this move, she will be able to improve their harvest.

Lorna chose CEVI because of its services. She receives not just loans but education as well to run her business.
