Salvina's story

Salvina Q. is a 42-year-old married woman who supports her family by engaging in a fishing and fish-vending business. She lives in Brgy Olympia, Bais City, Negros Oriental, with her 39-year-old husband, Joselito. They have three children aged between 6 and 14, all of whom are currently in school.

Salvina has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2007 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her fishing and fish-vending business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of 4,000 PHP.

Salvina is now borrowing 10,000 PHP to buy materials for her fishing business and as additional working capital for the business. This will be her fourth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of 10,000 PHP, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom. Salvina aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the 'Dungganon' way.
