Erlinda's story

Erlinda S. is from the town of Trinidad. She is 52 years old. Erlinda is married and has 7 children. To make a living, Erlinda owns and operates a food stall. While not the only means for generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes primarily from tending a "turo-turo" (cooked food counter) in the community. Erlinda wants to increase her earnings and have her own savings.

Erlinda joined CEVI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Erlinda has successfully repaid a previous loan from CEVI. Erlinda is requesting a new loan of 7,000 PHP which will be used to purchase ingredients for cooking. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to supplement the family's income.
