A loan of $275 helped to finance her farm, e.g. buy farm inputs.


Nelia's story

Nelia P., a 54-year-old farmer, strives to manage her rice field in Norala, South Cotabato. Her farm's income meets her family's basic needs and pays the tuition fees for her seven children.


In May 2008 Nelia joined Kiva partner Community Economic Ventures, Inc. (CEVI) in the hope that her farm could be financed with low interest. She is now requesting a loan of 12,000 PHP. She will use it to buy farm inputs and make her business grow.
