Leny has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2006 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her general store, furniture, and rice businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of Php 9,000.
Leny is now borrowing Php 18,000 so that she can continue to be able to purchase additional inventory for her general store and her rice business. This will be her 8th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of Php 18,000, which she paid off within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom.
Leny aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the “Dungganon” way.
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.
