Editha
Editha V. is a married woman who lives in Prk. Paho, Brgy. Pateño, Cauayan, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: fish vending and a variety store. Her husband, Rey, who is 48 years old, works as a fisherman to earn his living, and also helps with his wife's business activities. They have three children, who are between 25 and 29 years old. Editha joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2000 because she aspired to something better for her family. With the help of her past ten loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Editha has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 25,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 15,000, improving the family's standard of living. This time, for her eleventh loan, she is borrowing PHP 28,000, which she intends to use as additional capital for her fish selling business so that she can continue to save up for the future expansion of her business and home repairs. Editha V. 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 >>
