Norma joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2003 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 22 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Norma has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 13,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 8,000, uplifting the family's standard of living.
This time, for her 23rd loan, she is borrowing PHP 13,000 to buy more ginger and bamboo shoots to sell in the market so that she can continue to save up for her children's education and household improvements. Norma is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
