Maricel's story

Maricel is a 32-year-old woman. She is married and has three children. The oldest child is 8 years old, while the youngest child is 3 years old. She and her family live in a simple dwelling in Mahaplag, Leyte. To earn a living, she runs a sari-sari (variety) store business, and her husband does driving.

Maricel wishes to improve her household facilities, specifically her lavatory. So, she is asking for a loan through Kiva’s field partner CEVI in the Philippines. With this loan, she will pay for materials such as tiles, sand, deformed bar, plywood, PVC, cement, and hollow blocks.

Thanks to this loan, Maricel will improve her household, making it safe and clean.
