Josephine is 44 years old and married, with six children. With five children currently in school, Josephine works very hard to provide for them.

Josephine's business and family home were destroyed by super-typhoon Haiyan, which swept through the Philippines last November 8, 2013. Josephine has restarted her food-vending business and now needs to provide her family with safe shelter.

Josephine has taken a PHP 9,500 housing loan through Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (NWTF) to purchase materials to rebuild her family home.

She is using this loan to purchase building materials and to pay for construction labor.

Josephine is committed to rebuilding her devastated life and, in the future, would like to save enough money, so she could afford to send her children to college.

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 men and 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 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.
