Bonifacia's story

Bonifacia E. is from the town of Talibon. She is 51 years old. Bonifacia is married. To make a living, Bonifacia owns & operates a fishing business. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes from operating a fishing boat to catch and sell assorted fish at the market. Bonifacia has been involved in fishing for several years already. She hopes to be to sustain her family's financial needs.

Bonifacia joined CEVI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Bonifacia has successfully repaid a previous loan from CEVI. Bonifacia is requesting a new loan of 13,000 PHP which will be used to purchase fishing equipment including hooks & nets. This will be the tenth loan taken out by Bonifacia from CEVI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to supplement the family's income.
