Leoncia's story

Leoncia C. wishes to find a way to improve her family's quality of living. For this motivation, she joined Kiva and felt very happy to be given a loan and group support. The previous loans she received enabled her to support her husband’s fishing business, maintain her general store and canteen eatery. The profit from these businesses has been the main source of family income and funding for the education of her four children in college. Now that Leoncia has access to funding, her profits are better than before. Therefore, she is now requesting another loan through Kiva for a much bigger amount to purchase fishnet, bamboo, and other raw materials of her fishing business and pay for 120 sacks of charcoal for maintenance of her store . This will allow her to grow their businesses further so that their children can fulfill their dreams of achieving college degree and find good jobs.
