He, together with his wife, manages their own household while operating the business. At this time, he is working hard to continually provide income for their everyday expenses.

He sells his product at the market, to the fruit stores that he supplies regularly, and to the local community. He earns a minimum of PHP 3,000 in sales every week.

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 >>
