A loan of $450 helped to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs.


Bernardita's story

Bernardita is 61 years old and married with three children.

Bernardita is in the agricultural business. She raises pigs in the Philippines. Bernardita has requested a PHP 18,000 loan through NWTF to buy feed and vitamins for her pigs.

Bernardita has been raising pigs for eight years now. She has borrowed 12 times in the past from NWTF and, more recently, from Kiva to sustain it.

She is working tirelessly toward the attainment of her dream: to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family.
