Berlita
Berlita A. is a married woman who lives in Purok Mauboy, Brgy. Nabulao, Sipalay City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating two (2) business ventures: buying and selling peanuts and farming. Her husband Julieto A., who is 47 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have five children who are between 4 and 25 years old. Berlita joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2006 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past seven loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Berlita has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 19,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 10,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time for her eighth loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000, which she intends to use to buy more peanuts to sell so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children and home repairs. Berlita A. 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 >>
