Jessa
Jessa is 34 years old and married with four children, three of whom currently attend school. Jessa works very hard to provide for them. Jessa runs a business selling nipa (woven palm mats) used for house repair and construction in the Philippines and requested a PHP 9,000 loan through NWTF to buy additional nipa to sell. Jessa has been in this business for 10 years.

In the future Jessa would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.

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 >>
