Georgina
Georgina M. is a 45-year-old married woman who is blessed with three children between 21 and 25 years old. The family lives in the village of Brgy Miranda Hinigaran Negros Occidental. Georgina dreams of giving a proper education to her three children so that someday they will be gainfully employed, and not have to go through the difficulties she experienced in her life, needing to work hard just to survive.

These aspirations make Georgina a strong mother to her children and mobilize her to earn for the future and family by helping her husband earn a living for their family. She started with a small general store adjacent to her house, which helped a lot in supplementing their family income, but as her children grew older, their needs also grew, especially in relation to their education. She also wanted to expand her business and offer her customers a wider range of products. This motivated her to join NWTF-Project Dungganon and that was how she started to expand her business. Now she has an electronic reloading station - selling prepaid load to mobile phone users. Now she earns an average of PHP 10,000 per month.

In her previous loan, she borrowed Php 23,000, which she used as additional capital for her general store and electronic reloading. The said amount was paid within her loan term in full without delays. Now she is borrowing Php 24,000 as additional capital for her general store and to invest in a food vending business.
