Melinda
Melinda is 43 years old and married with two children. She works very hard to provide for them.

Melinda runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 15,000 loan through NWTF to buy more items like snack foods, shampoo, soft drinks, sugar, bread, milk, cereals, sanitary napkins and other groceries to sell.

Melinda has been in this business for 13 years and sells a variety of items such as snack foods, shampoo, soft drinks, sugar, bread, milk, cereals, sanitary napkins and other groceries.

In the future, Melinda would like to save enough money to 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 >>
