A loan of $250 helped to purchase soap, soft drinks, canned goods, sugar, and other products for her general store.


Josefa's story

As a married parent of three children, Josefa works hard to support her family. She runs a general store in the Philippines and raises pigs for extra income. Josefa is borrowing 10,000 PHP through NWTF (Kiva's field partner in the region) to purchase more products like soap, soft drinks, canned goods, and sugar to sell in her store.

Josefa has received support for her business through five previous loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream, which is to save enough money to expand her business.
