A loan of $300 helped to buy products like shampoo and groceries for her sari-sari store.


Benita's story

As a married mother of five children, Benita works hard to support her family. She has a sari-sari (general store) business in the Philippines, and earns additional income by selling fruits and vegetables. Benita is borrowing 12,000 PHP through NWTF (Kiva's field partner in the region) to buy products like shampoo and groceries to sell at her store.

Benita has received sustaining support for her business through her past 3 loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream, which is to repair and renovate her family home.
