Narda B. is a simple woman living in the rural village of Wigan Cordon, Isabela. Narda is already 39 years old and still single. She is a woman of strong determination, hard working and patient. She always strives for the best.

She has sacrificed her personal happiness to make her general store successful and to help her parents' daily living. Her store business has been a big help in providing their family's daily needs. She hopes to uplift their standard of living.

Narda wants to improve her business but she lacks capital. So she is asking for a loan from Kiva to purchase added merchandise, especially those basic commodities that her neighbors usually buy in her store. She hopes for a loan of PHP 5000 for additional business capital.
