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.
In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress out of earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
