Estrella
As a married parent of two children, Estrella works hard to support her family.

She buys and sells nipa (woven palm mats used for house repair and construction) as a business in the Philippines, and she also earns additional income from food vending and a general store. Estrella is borrowing 12,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) through NWTF to purchase additional stock of nipa to sell for her business.

Estrella has been sustaining her business activities through her past three loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save money to expand her business.

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 >>
