Maria Lourdes
Maria Lourdes is a 28-year-old married woman and a mother of two young children from Antequera, Bohol. She has been engaged in her basket weaving business for several years now. This is the source of her income.

Maria Lourdes works hard to earn a living so that she can support her husband in meeting the needs of the family.

Maria Lourdes is asking for a loan to buy more materials for basket weaving, such as buri and wicker. With this, she will be able to weave more baskets to sell in the market, thus augmenting her income.

In the future, Maria Lourdes hopes to make her business a success and save money for the schooling of her children.

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 >>
