Levi's story

Levi is 37 years old and lives in the village of Cabisera 9-11 of the province of Isabela. She is married to Jimmy who works as a furniture laborer in their village. Their eldest child is Leggie Boy, who is 19 years old. He did not pursue continuing his studies in college because he was not at all interested. Their youngest child is Gelvin, who is 18 years old and presently studying in high school. Levi wants both of them to finish their studies in college. She is trying to convince her elder son to pursue his studies, and she hopes that someday they will both have a complete education.

Levi is requesting a loan amounting to PHP21,000 to use as additional business capital in her tailoring business. She wants her business to expand and become more productive in order to improve their standard of living. She hopes that her requested loan will be approved so that she can generate more income. That would greatly benefit the education of her children.
