In her efforts to earn more income for her family, Veronica G. operates a general store and a cafeteria in their community, and also has a one-hectare rice field which is being farmed by her husband. Their combined business opportunities earn them a monthly income of approximately $215, which helps pay for the support of the family, her son's tuition, her weekly loan repayment and some savings for the future.
In the four years that she has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon, she has been able to maintain a good credit record by paying her installments on time, and to fully repay the loan within the promised period of time. Her previous loan of PHP 19,500 was applied to her business and she paid it all on time without any delinquency. For her 9th loan cycle, she is again borrowing PHP 19,500 so that she can stock her general store with more goods to resell to her customers. She plans to use the profits from this venture to support the needs of her family.
