Joel A. is a 40 year old married man who supports his family by operating 3 business ventures: general store, duck raising, and tricycle transport. He lives in Mantabed, Brgy. Mabini, Valladolid, Negros Occidental.

He has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2005 and has improved his family's living conditions with the help of his loans from NWTF and through his own efforts. By working hard in his general store, duck raising and tricycle transport businesses, he is gradually making his family more economically stable. He now earns an average monthly income of PHP 10,000. Joel is now borrowing PHP 19,500 so that he can buy groceries, soft drinks, and rice to sell in his general store. This will be his 10th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. His previous loan of PHP 19,500, which he paid off well within its term was just another step in his journey toward economic freedom. Joel aspires to elevate his family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.

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 >>
