Anita
Anita is a 49-year-old widow who supports her family by operating a sari-sari (general) store in the province of Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2008 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her sari-sari (general) store business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 10,000. Anita is borrowing PHP 17,000 so that she could increase her working capital and be able to buy more merchandise to sell in her sari-sari (general) store and therefore increase her income capacity. This will be her sixth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 14,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Anita aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.

More information about this loan

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 >>
