Marina
Marina R., 55 years old, is a widowed woman who supports her family by engaging in buying and selling seaweed. She lives in Brgy Dungo-an Manjuyod, Negros Oriental with her two adult children.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1999 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her seaweed buy and sell business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 28,000.

Marina is now borrowing PHP 18,000 so that she can continue her buy and sell business. This will be her 15th cycle loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 18,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Marina aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the “Dungganon” way.

About NWTF:

Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress out of earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.

On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk. More information >>
