Evelyn's story

Evelyn D. is a 47 years old farmer in Sto. Nino, Cotabato. She has eight children and a very supportive husband who helps her manage their rice field. In 1983, they started to till land on a two-hectare farm. Aside from farming, they also have a sari-sari store. These are their sources of income.


She would like a loan of Php 15,000 from Kiva partner Community Economic Ventures Inc.in order to purchase fertilizers and chemicals that are vital to ensure quality and healthy rice. She is very optimistic that she will be able to achieve more than the average of what is normally yielded in her rice farm.
