Elizabeth is a 50-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating three business ventures: a sari-sari store, food vending and an Avon dealership. She lives in the province of Negros Oriental, Philippines. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2005 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 3,600. Elizabeth is borrowing PHP 11,000 so that she can purchase more stock to sell. This will be her 10th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 9,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Elizabeth aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.

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 >>
