Elsa
Elsa is a married woman who lives in Bantayan, Cebu. She earns her living by fishing and fish vending. Her husband Rogelio, who is 46 years old, works as a fisherman to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have seven children who are between 2 and 19 years old.

Elsa joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1997 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 15 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Elsa has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow.

Her previous loan of PHP 23,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 20,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 16th loan, she is borrowing PHP 23,000 to buy fishing gear and equipment so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children and purchase additional fishing boats. Elsa is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
