Maria
Maria E. is a married woman who lives in Prk. Tuburan, Brgy Vito, Sagay City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a fish vending business. Her husband Federico E., who is 55 years old, works as a carpenter to earn his living, and also helps with his wife's business activities. They have 10 children, who are between the ages of 12 and 33. Maria joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2003 because she wanted something better for her family. With the help of her past 9 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Maria has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 19500 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 8000, uplifting her family's standard of living. This time, for her 10th cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 19500, which she intends to use to purchase fishing nets for the business so that she can continue to save up for the future needs of her family. Maria E. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.

About NWTF: In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress from 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.

More information about this loan

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 >>
