Anecita, 41, is a seaweed farmer. By God’s grace, she was able to save from her income from seaweed farming and bought her own pump boat. She uses the boat to transport passengers from her place to the town of Talibon. She was also able to open a small store at her house. This makes her happy because she can provide for her family’s needs.
She is married and has four children. Her oldest is 12 and goes to school. Anecita still hopes to succeed in her business life so she could send all her children to school and give them a proper education. She asked to borrow 25,000 Philippine pesos from CEVI, which will be used to fund her business.
