Alicia G. is married, lives in Sta. Catalina, Brgy. Aguisan, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by running three businesses: selling dried fish, bamboo and pigs that she has raised and fattened. Her husband Jaime, who is 59 years old, has his own store and also helps his wife. The couple has three children who range in age from 26 to 36 years old.

Alicia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2005 because she wanted a better life for her family. With the help of 10 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, she has been slowly lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. She has applied for a new loan, for PHP 17,000, to buy more dried fish and bamboo to sell to her customers. Her goals are to continue to expand her businesses and help her children.

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 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.

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 >>
