Ma. Lanie
Ma. Lanie C. is a 48-year old married woman who lives in Hacienda Vista Alegre, Barangay Eustaquio Lopez, Silay City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by food vending, by operating a general store and a motor shop and by manufacturing hollow blocks. In the photo, Ma. Lanie poses with the sand heap that is the main raw material for making hollow blocks.

Ma. Lanie’s husband, Reynaldo, manages the hollow-blocks business which is their biggest source of income. They have four children who are between 20 and 27 years old, some of whom work and help support the family.

Ma. Lanie joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in December 2003 in the hope that she would be able to help her husband improve the quality of life of their family. With the help of her loans from NWTF-PD she has been able to increase their family income by engaging in her various businesses. Now she earns an average monthly income of Php 10,000 from her business activities.

Ma. Lanie is a member of good standing. Her previous loan of Php 19,500 was used to fund operations of her businesses and it had a positive impact on both the businesses and on the family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing Php 20,000 for her 15th loan which she again intends to use as additional working capital for her businesses.

Ma. Lanie is working hard to achieve her dreams and aspirations for her family which are to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life.
