Lerma's story

Lerma C. is from the town of Surallah. She is 62 years old and married. To make a living, Lerma owns and operates a business venture in the agriculture sector raising crops. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from planting and harvesting rice for sale. Lerma also owns and manages a sari-sari (variety) store where she sells coffee, sugar and other products.

Lerma joined CEVI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Lerma is requesting a new loan of 6000 PHP which will be used to purchase fertilizers and seeds. This loan will be the first loan taken out by Lerma from CEVI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve her family's living condition.
