Vicenta's story

Vicenta is 49 years old and married with 4 children, of whom 3 are in school. Vicenta works very hard to provide for them. She runs a variety store in the Philippines and requested a loan of PHP 20,000 from Kiva's partner, NWTF, to purchase more items to sell. Vicenta has been in this business for 12 years and sells a variety of products such as sugar, snack foods and other miscellaneous items. In the future Vicenta would like to save enough money to expand her business.
