Adelfa's story

Adelfa is 38 years old and has seven children. She is married, and has three children who are in school. Adelfa and her family survived super typhoon Haiyan, which swept through the Philippines on November 8, 2013, but her business and family home were wiped out. She is taking out a housing loan amounting to 10,000 PHP to purchase building materials and pay for construction labor to build a house for her family. Adelfa has been an NWTF borrower since 2013. She plans to recover through her buying and selling fish. With your help, Adelfa can rebuild her house and rebound from the devastation of super typhoon Haiyan. In future, she would like to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family, and to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
