A loan of $950 helped to purchase different commodities needed in her farming business.

Luciana's story

Luciana S. B. is a hard working mother who tries her best in order to improve her farming business for the benefit of her family. Hard work and patience are her foundation in achieving a good life. Lack of business capital encouraged her to seek financial support from Kiva lenders. The loan she is using amounts to 43,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) from the lenders and is helping her improve her business by purchasing different commodities needed for farming.

This loan was a great help in the maintenance of their farming business particularly in their rice production by purchasing fertilizers and rice seeds. Aside from farming, she also sells Avon Products as supplementary source of income. Luciana is thankful for the support of ASHI and is hoping to further improve their crop production in the future through work and continuous assistance of the lenders. This would not only provide her with happiness in life, but would also make her business improve and make more profit, which will allow her to support the basic needs of her family.

Her long term goal is to have their own tricycle transport business (three-wheeled vehicle) for additional revenue to build a sustainable life that is out from under the umbrella of poverty. Through hard work and focus, Luciana is determined to improve her standard of life with the kind-hearted support of ASHI and Kiva lenders.
