Jocelyn and her family survived Super Typhoon Haiyan, which swept through the Philippines last November 8, 2013, but her business and family home were wiped out.
Jocelyn is taking out a housing loan amounting to 9,860 PHP (Philippines pesos) to purchase building materials and pay for construction labor to build a house for her family.
Jocelyn has been an NWTF borrower since 2012. She plans to recover through her fish-vending business.
With your help, Jocelyn can rebuild her house and rebound from the devastation of Super Typhoon Haiyan. In the future, she would like to save enough money to expand her business.
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. More information >>

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.
