Shirley
Shirley works hard to support her four children. She is married and has a frozen foods business in the Philippines.

Shirley requested a 3,800 PHP loan through NWTF to buy a SOLAR LAMP. She is getting the solar lamp because she wants to have an emergency light source that is waterproof in case of heavy rains and floods. She is aware that by using the solar lamp, she is not only saving money, she is also helping the environment and reducing health and hazard risks to her family.

More information about this loan

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Hayian 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 >>

This loan is part of NWTF's green loan program, which helps clients to gain access to environmentally friendly products that reduce pollution in the Philippines.
