Clarisa's story

Clarissa is 37 years old and married with 3 children.

Clarissa is in the agricultural business, raising carabao (water buffalo) in the Philippines. Clarissa requested a PHP 30,000 loan through NWTF to buy carabao for plowing sugarcane fields.

Clarissa has also been raising pigs for 10 years now, and has borrowed 15 times in the past from NWTF and more recently, from Kiva, to sustain her business.
