Nenita
Nenita A., 34, lives in a shanty village near the Manila Bay in Parola, Binondo. Her husband works as a truck helper for a cargo company. They have 4 children, all of whom are in grade school.

Nenita has a general store. She opened her store two years ago, but it has already grown from a small store with only a few items to sell to what it is now. Nenita makes at least P9, 000.00 net sales per month, which she uses to pay for her family's basic daily needs including children’s education.

She dreams of seeing all four of her children finish their studies until college, because it was her challenge to get to college.

Nenita joined the Center for Community Transformation (CCT) Credit Cooperative in June 2007. She belongs to the Intramuros Branch. She is now on her 5th loan cycle. Nenita applied for a P10, 000.00 loan from the cooperative to expand her general store. She is buying more items to sell.

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
