Typhoon Haiyan - One Year On

'The Bangon Recovery Loan has given us peace of mind'


On 8th November 2014, Lori lost her home, her fishing boat and along with it, the chance to make some money. Aside from the immediate needs of food and shelter, what she wanted most to recover her business so she can put her life back together - as quickly as possible.

Twelve months later, and Lori is back out and fishing. She is one of 2,500 people who took out a recovery loan to buy the things they needed to rebuild their business quickly and fully.

You can hear Lori's story in this short film.
