As a married parent of 10 children, Luzviminda works hard to support her family. She has a fishing business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from tailoring. Luzviminda is borrowing a loan of PHP 19,500 from Kiva's partner, NWTF, to purchase equipment for fishing boat maintenance.
Luzviminda has been sustaining her business activities through her past 17 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving money to expand her business.
