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

She has a cashew seed vending business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from raising pigs. Merliza is borrowing PHP 13,000 through NWTF to purchase additional sacks of cashew seeds to sell in her cashew seed vending business.

Merliza has been sustaining her business activities through her past 5 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so that 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 >>
