A loan of $350 helped to buy rice to sell.


Myrna's story

As a married mother of three children, Myrna works hard to support her family.

She has a rice business in the Philippines and also earns additional income by selling vegetables. Myrna is borrowing 14,000 PHP through NWTF to buy more rice to sell.

In the past, Myrna has sustained her business activities with seven loans from NWTF and, more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving enough money to send her children to college.
