Cerina has run a sari-sari or grocery store business for more than five years now as her only source of income. Cerina sells various goods to the people in her community.
Cerina joined CEV because she likes the services offered by the organization, such as loans and insurance. Cerina is asking for a new loan of 15000 PHP to buy additional items to sell in her store such as noodles, seasonings, soda and biscuits.
In the future, Cerina dreams of making her business a success and saving money for the schooling of her children.
