To make a living, Anita works in someone else's business venture in the retail sector, running a sari-sari (variety) store.

In June 2009, Anita joined Kiva partner, HSPFI, to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Anita is requesting a loan of 5,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase additional products to sell. This loan will be Anita's first loan from HSPFI.
