A loan of $625 helped to purchase pants, t-shirts, caps and other ready-to-wear clothing.


Lucia's story

As a married mother of four children, Lucia works hard to support her family.

She has a business selling ready-to-wear clothing in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from buying and selling scrap gold. Lucia is borrowing 25,000 PHP through NWTF (Kiva's field partner in the region) to purchase more items like pants, t-shirts, caps and other ready-to-wear clothing.

Lucia has been sustaining her business activities with support from her past 19 loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream, which to build and expand her business so she can secure the future of her family.
