Helen
Helen is a married woman who lives in Bago City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a sari-sari (general) store. Her husband Salvador, Jr., who is 47 years old, works as a laborer to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have three children who are between 20 and 24 years old. Helen joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2003 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past five loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Helen has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 11,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 4,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her sixth loan, she is borrowing PHP 13,500 to purchase more stock for her sari-sari store so that she can continue to save up for her children’s education and for better living conditions. Helen is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.

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 even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed upon a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.

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 >>
