Nilda already had a general store before she joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1997, but she was able to expand her operations by selling her products in the nearby school, earning more income from a bigger customer base. She even expanded to selling food, and this has become a stable source of income, earning about 19,800 PHP per month. Her previous loan of 29,500 PHP was well utilized as working capital for her general store and now she is borrowing the same amount to continue sustaining the business momentum of her general store and 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 achieve 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.
