Rosalia's story

Rosalia Macaro is a 48-year old single woman who lives in the village of Brgy Alimango Escalante City Negros Occidental. She earns her living by fishing. She dreams that her business will continue to help her family and she wants to buy another fishing boat. Rosalia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2002 to help improve the quality of life of her family. With the help of her loans she has increased her family's income. Now she earns an average monthly income of Php 6,000. Rosalia is a member in good standing. Her previous loan of Php 17,000 was used to fund operations of her fishing business and it has had a positive impact on her business and family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing for her 10th cycle loan, Php 17,000, to use on fishing. Rosalia is working hard to achieve her dreams and aspirations for her family; to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life. -------------------------------------- About NWTF: In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project <i>Dungganon</i> (a Hiligaynon word that means <u>Honorable</u>).
