Lucena's story

Being fond of gardening, Lucena S. ventures in a vegetable-garden business. According to her, aside from gardening, she also dreams of having a vegetable-vending stall in their village, thus she is requesting PHP 5,000 from Kiva for her to start her store. She is very optimistic that, through the loan, she can start another business for the welfare of her family.

Lucena is a woman with strong determination to face all the challenges in life. Aside from being a business-minded person, Lucena is truly a faithful and loving wife to her husband, Ofelio. They are able to nurture their six children, three of whom are already married. On the other hand, another two were forced to quit schooling because of poverty. Thus their youngest child is the only one attending school.
