Rosita
Rosita M., a 57-year old married woman who lives in Talusan, Brgy. Bulanon, Sagay City, earns a living by operating her own fishing business. Rosita’s husband, Carlo, is a fisherman, and they have eight children who are school-age and adult-age, including a daughter working abroad. They own two vehicles which their two sons take care of for their business, and they also have a sugarcane farm.



Rosita joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1990 to help her husband improve their family's quality of life. With the assistance of her loans from NWTF-PD, she has been able to increase their family income by starting a fishing business, now earning an average monthly income of Php10,000.

A member in good standing, Rosita's previous loan of Php29,500 was used to fund operations for her fishing business and had a positive impact on both the business and the family’s living conditions. Now requesting her 16th loan in the amount of Php29,500, which she intends to use as additional working capital, Rosita is working hard to achieve her dreams for her family, which are to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life.
