A loan of $250 helped to purchase building materials and pay for construction labor.


Lorena's story

Lorena is forty years old and has eight children. She is married and has four children who are in school.

She 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.

Lorena is taking out a housing loan amounting to PHP 10,000 to purchase building materials and pay for construction labor to build a house for her family.

Lorena has been an NWTF borrower since 2012. She plans to recover through her food vending.

With your help, Lorena can rebuild her house and rebound from the devastation of super typhoon Haiyan. In the future she would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
