Norma's story

Norma is 64 years old and married. She works hard to support her family. She has a buy-and-sell herbal medicine business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income from boarding house rental. Norma is borrowing 18,000 Philippine Pesos through Kiva's partner NWTF to buy additional herbal medicines to sell for her buy-and-sell herbal medicines business. Norma has been sustaining her business activities through her past 18 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save money and expand her business.
