Myrna and her husband earn their living through vegetable farming and selling their crop to bulk buyers who go to their farm at harvest time. Vegetable farming is not an easy job and requires the family's full attention and focus. Diligence is required to make sure that the vegetables are pest-free and well cared-for until they are ready for harvest.
The P. family has so far been blessed with good harvests and Myrna has used most of the money she has borrowed form NWTF-Project Dungganon to buy the materials and tools that she needs to take care of the plants. Thus far, the income from the vegetable farm has been sufficient to support their two daughters' education and the family's basic needs.
For her 9th loan, Mrs. P. is borrowing PHP 15,000.00, which she plans to use to purchase breeding livestock and to use as additional capital for her vegetable farm. She hopes to increase the income potential of her family.
In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. has answered the calling of not just of a few but thousands of women. Through the alleviation program, these women have progressed from earning less than a measly $1 a day, to surpassing the realities beyond their dreams. They have learned to live a life where they can finally be called honorable. This is Project Dungganon.
