Lucita works hard to support six children. She is married and has a buy-and-sell vegetables and fruits business in the Philippines.

Lucita requested a PHP 1,800 loan through Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (NWTF) to buy a solar lamp. She is getting the solar lamp because she wants to provide her children with bright light when they study at night. Lucita is aware that by using the solar lamp, she is not only saving money, she is also helping the environment and reducing health and hazard risks to her family.
