Ma. Elena's story

Ma. Elena Nunez, 44, is married and supports her family through her dressmaking and gown-for-rent business. She lives in Brgy 2, Sipalay City Negros Occidental with her husband, Nonito, who helps her in running the business, and their only child, who is of school age.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2000, and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her dressmaking and gown-for-rent business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 13,000.

Ma. Elena Nunez is now borrowing PHP 25,000 that she can use as additional working capital for her dressmaking business. This will be her 16th cycle loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 10,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Ma. Elena aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the “Dungganon” way.
