Recelia R. is a married woman who lives in Lopez-Jaena St., Brgy. 3, Isabela, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a pig-fattening business. Her husband Renato R., who is 42 years old, works as a fisherman to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have four children who are from 6 to 18 years old.

Recelia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2003 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 11 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Recelia has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 19,000 Philippines pesos (PHP) helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 10,000, thus uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 12th loan, she is borrowing PHP 21,000 which she intends to use to buy more feeds and piglets so that she can continue to save up for future rolling capital and for the education of her children. Recelia R. is a Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means "honorable") woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
