Roselita's story

Roselita is a resident of Sogod, Southern Leyte. She is 47 years old, married, and has two children – ages 18 and 6 years old. Her husband works as a carpenter and tuba (a coconut wine) gatherer to support their family. To help her husband obtain an income, she does a food-selling business and sells the tuba.

Now, Roselita wants to construct a good toilet for her family. With this in mind, she asks for a loan of PHP 12,000 through Kiva’s field partner, CEVI-Philippines, who offers financial assistance to access safe water and proper hygiene. From this loan she will buy materials for building such as concrete blocks, cement, rebar, tie wire, PVC tee, solvent, PVC pipe, a toilet bowl, GI sheets, nails, lumber and a PVC door.

Indeed, this loan is very important to Roselita and her family for them to have a good toilet.
