Because Nenita wanted to help her husband improve their living conditions, she joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in the year 2000 and started her own business. She put up a general store adjacent to her house where it helps her to meet their household needs. As the loans continued, she also invested in a networking business with Avon, Natasha and MSE products. With this additional income, she earns 7000 Philippine pesos (PHP) per month, most of which is saved for college education and household needs.
Nenita's previous loan of 16,000 PHP was used as additional capital for her general store business. This loan was repaid to NWTF-PD in full and on time. Presently, with a loan of 16,000 PHP, she purchased additional inventory for her general store and networking 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 from 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 on a member of the community who has earned respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
