Lucky Group's story

Gemma is the featured borrower of Lucky group. She got together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua because they have always been friends since they left their hometown in the Philippines to work in order to provide for their families with the necessary living needs.

Gemma is a 41-year-old widowed mother of five children, whom she sacrifices her living for their education and living. She is a hard worker who puts so much effort in developing her children's living and education. Her acquired loan will be invested in paying for her children's necessary school fees. She is their sole breadwinner since her husband passed away. To make sure that they will get an education, she works hard to provide for them.

Gemma is working as a housekeeper and hopes that one day she can go back to the Philippines and start her own business next to her beloved children.
