With the help of her past 7 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Carmela has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 18,000 helped her to earn a monthly profit of PHP 8,000, lifting her family's standard of living. This time, for her 8th loan, she is borrowing PHP 19,000. She intends to use this as addtional capital for her business so that she can continue to save up for the future and for her daily needs. Carmela O. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her 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 >>
