Patricia's story

Patricia is 61 years old and married, with four children. She works very hard to provide for them. Patricia's business and family home were destroyed by Super Typhoon Haiyan, which swept through the Philippines last November 8, 2013. Patricia has restarted her business and now needs to provide her family with safe shelter. Patricia has taken a PHP 10,000 housing loan through NWTF to purchase materials to rebuild her family home. She is using this loan purchase building materials and to pay for construction labor. Patricia is committed to rebuild her devastated life and in the future would like to save enough to provide a secure future for her family.
