A loan of $500 helped to purchase additional pigs and other livestock to sell.


Marifel's story

Marifel is 30 years old and married with three children. She earns a living by buying and selling pigs in the Philippines, a business she has been doing for four years. She earns additional income by farming corn and peanuts. Marifel is borrowing 20,000 PHP through NWTF (Kiva's field partner) to purchase additional pigs and other livestock to sell.

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