A loan of $600 helped to buy materials for her rug-making business.

Rustica's story

Rustica has successfully repaid her first Kiva loan. With it she financed and has sustained her rug-making business. She is thankful for your support and the opportunity to borrow money from Kiva. Rustica is very happy that, with the loan, she is able to provide prompt service to her regular customers. She wants a larger loan to expand her business and make more profit. She thanks Kiva for providing her with the opportunity to increase her income. Your support is important to her family and they are very grateful. Rustica joined Kiva partner, ASHI, to follow her dreams of giving a decent life to her family.

Now Rustica would like another Kiva loan of 25,000 Philippine pesos to purchase raw materials needed in her business. She wants to save for the future of her family, especially to enable her grandchildren to complete their studies through college. Her long-term goal is to expand her business to improve her financial stability and her family’s quality of life — currently far below poverty level.
