Cynthia J. has a sow. She started her business after she married. She is 36 years old and has 5 children. Her husband is a farmer. Together, they manage their business to support their family's needs. Aside from pigs, they also grow vegetables in their backyard. They water them every day and use the proceeds from their harvest to pay for their other needs.

Cynthia is asking a loan of Php 6,000 from CEVI. She will use the loan to buy additional piglets and feed to grow her piggery. She has regular buyers of her pigs. The loan will truly help her grow her business and earn more income to pay for schools, electricity, and food for her family.

CEVI is reaching out to help more pig growers sustain their livelihood. CEVI provides all their clients with credit assistance, training, and insurance coverage services to help their small businesses grow.
