Deolita
Deolita A. is a married woman who lives in Sitio Quarry, Brgy Rafaela Barrera, Sagay City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by selling Ready-to-Wear (RTW) clothes. Her husband, Elesio A., age 56, earns his living as a vendor and also helps with his wife's business. They have four children who are 19 to 33 years old.

Deolita joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1998 because she wanted something better for her family. With the help of her past 19 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, and by the sweat of her brow, Deolita has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty. Her previous loan of 29,500 Philippine pesos (PHP) helped her earn a monthly profit of 16,000 PHP, improving her family's standard of living. This time, for her 20th loan, she is borrowing 29,500 PHP, which she intends to use as additional capital for her business so that she can continue to save up for the future of her family. Deolita A. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.

About NWTF:

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 >>
