Meliza
As a married parent of five children, Meliza works hard to support her family. She has a motorcycle transport business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income from her vulcanizing shop and from farming rice. Meliza is borrowing PHP 40,000 through NWTF to buy spare parts for the maintenance of her motorcycle and materials for her vulcanizing shop. Meliza has sustained her business activities with her past ten loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money to send her children to college and 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 >>
