Felecia's story

Felecia P. is a married woman who lives in Prk 3, Brgy. Bonbonon, Siaton, Negros Oriental. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: a general store and an entertainment business. Her husband, Francisco P. Jr., who is 49 years old, works as a barangay (neighborhood) councilor to earn his living. Their children range from 15 to 23 years old years old.

Felecia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1999 because she aspired to something better for her family. With the help of her past three loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Felecia has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 9,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 9,000; thus, uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her fourth loan cycle, she is borrowing PHP 15,000, which she intends to use as an additional capital for her business so that she can continue to save up for the future and for her children's education. Felecia P. is a Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means "honorable") woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
