Kiva - November 2014

Welcome back to a new year and a slight backlog of Kiva loans!  :D

Remedios (Philippines)

A loan of $175 helps Remedios to pay for her children's school expenses this school year.

Remedios is married and has 5 children. Her husband is a fisherman. They live in Plaridel-Danao, Philippines. Remedios supports the daily needs of the family by selling the catch of her husband and by buying the catch of her neighbors to sell. In January of 2014, Remedios applied for membership in Paglaum Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PMPC) after she learned of the benefits offered by the Co-op to its members. She became a member in good standing and has received several loans, which were repaid in a timely manner. She is a persevering mother who wants nothing more but to see all her children achieve their diplomas and have stable jobs. Remedios is in need of financial assistance. She requested a loan of 7,000 PHP to pay for her children's school expenses this school year. Someday, she hopes to build a concrete house for the family.

You too can get involved and contribute to a loan today!

UPDATE: As of June 26, 2015, Remedios' loan was fully repaid.  See the update here.
