Mercidita's story

Mercidita is 40 years old and married with seven children. With five children currently in school, Mercidita works very hard to provide for them.

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

Mercidita has taken a PHP 7,000 housing loan through NWTF to purchase materials to rebuild her family home.

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

Mercidita is committed to rebuild her devastated life and in future would like to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
