A loan of $225 helped to buy sacks of rice and other commodities.


Mila's story

Mila is engaged in a rice retailing business. She is 53 years old and married to Faustino, a carpenter in their village. Since her husband does not have regular work, she started her own business as another source of income. Together they are helping one another provide for the needs of their family. They have four children: Floreante, George, Maryrose, and Joshua.

Mila wants her business to improve and this is the reason she is asking to borrow 10,000 pesos from Kiva lenders. She plans to buy sacks of rice and other commodities that she can offer to her customers. She is hoping that her business will continue to improve.
