This is Christita, 48 years old and a resident of Manila, Philippines. She is a mother to her children and manages her household while operating her business, a food stall. At this time, she is working hard to continually provide income for her family's everyday expenses.

Christita sells native cakes and pastries, which she mostly makes from sticky rice, in her community. Her regular customers are her neighbors and the local community. She earns a minimum of 300 Philippine pesos (PHP) in sales every day.

To help her continue operating her business, she is requesting a loan of 50,000 PHP. She will use the loan to buy more raw ingredients and products for her business. She expects a boost in her business income as she expands her business.

Christita dreams of being able to give her children a good life through all her hard work on her business. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week and draws strength and inspiration from the Word of God.

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 >>
