Felina's story

Felena Bredan is 62 years old an a member of Ahon sa Hirap, Inc. – a microfinance partner of Kiva in the Philippines. Felena’s dream is to have a nice, comfortable house with rooms she can rent out to boarders. While still young, she decided to remain single so that she could support her family. She uses the profits she earns from renting rooms to help her brothers, sisters and other member of her family. She also saves some money to pay her health expenses. She is applying for a loan for 25,000 PHP to use to buy materials and pay workers to expand and renovate her house.
