Lucia
As a married mother of three children, Lucia works hard to support her family.

She has a fishing business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from selling seafood. Lucia is borrowing PHP 29,500 through NWTF to buy fishing nets and other equipment for her fishing business.

Lucia has been sustaining her business activities through her past 25 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.

More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
