With the help of her past 18 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Armelita has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow.

This time, for her 19th loan, she is borrowing PHP 29,500 to fund her palm oil farming operation so that she can continue to save up for the future expansion of her business. Armelita is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
