A loan of $425 helped to buy more fish and to maintain her boat.


Teresita's story

Teresita V. is a member in good standing from Katipa, Lopez Jaena, Misamis Occidental. She is sixty-one years old and has eight children. She is currently engaged in a fish-vending business and had only $10 for her start up capital. Amazingly, she manages her business well. Teresita would like Paglaum, one of Kiva's field partners, to finance her needed capital. She applied for a loan of $425 to buy more fish to sell and to help with the maintenance of her fishing boat. She wants to save for her old age and to live simply with her children around her.
