Flor Hazel's story

Flor Hazel is a hardworking entrepreneur who is always looking for opportunities to grow. Through her daily effort, she is building a better future for her family.

The fishing business has brought happiness to Flor Hazel’s family. Because of its profits, she has been able to support her family’s needs. Being a good mother, Flor has always wanted to support her children in whatever career they would be taking to better their own personal life. The fishing business is her way of saving money to support the needs of her family, especially to pay for her six children's education until college.

Her husband’s support of her fishing business is Flor Hazel’s motivation to continue expanding her business despite the trials of poverty. Over time, she has been able to purchase a fishing boat for her husband to manage and use for fishing. Meanwhile, Flor Hazel is the one who sells his fish directly to people in local community and nearby town of Tobias Fornier, Antique.

Flor Hazel is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders to purchase an additional fishing boat to catch more fish to sell. This would help their business grow, and make more profit, which will enable her to support her ambition in life.
