Erlinda
Erlinda A. is a married woman who lives in Purok Hapit Anay, Brgy. Rizal, Sagay City, Negros Occidental. She operates 2 business ventures: a fruit stand and a tricycle transport businesses. Her husband, Teddy, who is 44 years old, works as a driver and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have four children who are 16 to 22 years old.

Erlinda joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2003 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 12 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Erlinda has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 20,000 helped to lift her family's standard of living. This time, for her 13th cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 21,000. She intends to use this to buy more fruit to sell in her fruit stand so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children. Erlinda A. 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.

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 >>
