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.
