A loan of $375 helped to buy more stock for her sari sari.


Vena's story

As a married parent of two children, Vena works hard to support her family. She has a sari sari, or general store, in the Philippines and earns additional income by farming and raising pigs.


Vena’s business has been thriving with the help of her past eight loans from NWTF and, more recently, Kiva. She is now applying for a 15,000 PHP through NWTF to buy more stock like sugar, shampoo etc. to sell in her store.


Vena is determined that her hard work will help her increase her profits and expand her business.
