Lucena's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase additional firewood.
In 2008, Lucena joined HSPFI to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Lucena has successfully repaid a previous loan of 8,000 PHP from HSPFI. Lucena is requesting a new loan of 11,000 PHP which will be used to purchase additional products to sell. This will be the 3rd loan taken out by Lucena from HSPFI. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve her house.
HSPFI is one of accredited partners of Opportunity International in the Philippines. It is based in Cagayan de Oro City and reaches out to the poor households of Northern Mindanao.
