Dorica is a married woman with three children. She is a very hard working entrepreneur. She is 51 years old and has three children who are in school.

Her house was destroyed by super typhoon Haiyan which swept through the Philippines last November 8, 2013. She has restarted her fishing business and is committed to regain what she lost. She is taking out a PHP 10,000 housing loan through NWTF to purchase building materials and pay for construction labor to build her a house for her family.

Dorica has been with NWTF since 2012 in her effort to rise out of poverty. With your help, she will be able to start once more in a new home. In the future, she would like to save enough money to expand her business.

Additional Information

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. These loans will be directed to borrowers living in affected areas and help them to rebuild and recover. 

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.

About Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation

Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (NWTF) is a non-governmental organization established with an aim to help women achieve self-sufficiency, particularly in the province of Negros Occidental’s low-income communities. The organization offers its clients a wide variety of products, including loans for micro-entrepreneurs, hospital income benefits, life insurance, accidental death benefits and more. Kiva lenders’ funds will be used to expand the reach of these products to women in low-income urban and rural communities.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
