A loan of $100 helped to buy two sacks of rice to sell and vegetables, too.

Maricel's story

Maricel is 26 years old. She is married to Romualdo and they have a six-year-old daughter named Christine. Maricel’s husband works as a farmer and sometimes helps her in selling pineapples in their village. The couple and their daughter live happily in the village of Sitio Anguapan, Tumauini, Isabela.

Aside from selling pineapples, Maricel is engaged in a business selling rice. She also has a small vegetable farm in their backyard. She is always hoping that she can provide a better life for her child and give her a good education. Her daily net income from selling pineapples is only PHP 150 daily. In this regard, Maricel would like to obtain a loan of PHP 4,000 to be used as additional capital in purchasing two sacks of rice to retail and vegetables, too. She hopes to continuously maintain her business with the help of Kiva lenders.
