A loan of $250 helped to purchase fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides for her farm.

Mary Ann's story

Mary Ann M. owns a rice field. She and her husband grow rice to support their family. She is 34 years old and has 4 children. Her life is on the farm, and almost all of their produce is reserved for their family's consumption, while the remainder is sold to the rice traders in their village. Because this is the family's only source of livelihood, Mary Ann wants to expand her farm. By doing so, she believes, she will have more harvest and income for the family.

She is requesting a loan of Php 11,000 to run her farm. She will use the loan to buy sacks of fertilizers and tanks of herbicides and insecticides to increase crop yield. She is also thinking of some other business lines to augment the family's income.

CEVI (Kiva's Field Partner) helps Mary Ann sustain her farm. She is provided with credit assistance, trainings and insurance coverage by CEVI to make her business grow.
