Mrs. C. joined NWTF-Project Dungganon because she dreamed of improving the quality of life of her family.
For almost six years, Mrs. C. has operated a general store that sells an almost complete line of household commodities to her neighbors. In addition to her general store, she also sells fish to the community, and these business activities earn her an average of PHP 39,000 per month - enough to sustain her family of nine.
For her 18th loan, she is requesting Php 25,000 which she plans to invest in expanding the operations of her business.
In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. has answered the call of not just 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 realities beyond their dreams. They have learned to live a life where they can finally be called honorable. This is Project Dungganon.
