Erlinda
Erlinda M. is a 48-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating three business ventures: Nipa (palm leaves), pig fattening and fish vending.

She lives in Prk. Toril, Brgy. Bocana, Ilog, Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2003 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her Nipa, pig-fattening and fish-vending businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of 6,000 Philippine pesos (PHP).

Erlinda is now borrowing PHP 23,000 so that she can use it as additional capital. This will be her 11th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 19,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom.

Erlinda aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means "honorable") way.

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 >>
