Juanita
Juanita is a 66-year-old widow from Leyte, Philippines. She earns a living through her sari sari or retail store business. She sells various goods and items to the people in her place. Several months ago, a typhoon ravaged the country and swept away thousands of households including Juanita's business.

As of this time, Juanita wants to improve her store once again so that it will generate income. With this, she joined CEVI to gain access to loan services offered by the organization to micro entrepreneurs like her. She is requesting a loan to buy additional merchandise to sell like canned goods, noodles, soda and beverages, candies and snack foods, soap and toiletries. In the future, Juanito hopes that this loan could help her to improve her way of living.

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. These loans will be directed to borrowers living in affected areas and help them to rebuild and recover. 

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.
