Imelda has been sustaining her business activities through her past seven loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough to provide a secure future for her family.

Additional Information

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 >>
