A loan of $450 helped to purchase more items to sell in her store.


Lucena's story

As a married mother of one child, Lucena works hard to support her family.

She has a sari-sari store in the Philippines, and she also earns additional income from food vending. Lucena is borrowing PHP 18,000 through NWTF to purchase more items to sell in her store.

Lucena has been sustaining her business activities through her 7 previous loans from NWTF and, more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her to attain her dream of saving money to expand her business.
