Fortunata's story

Fortunata Y. is a 56-year-old married woman with one child who lives in Bollos St., Brgy. Boyco, Bayawan City, Negros Oriental. Fortunata has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon for five years now and earns a living by running a general store/frozen goods business. She is purchasing a solar lantern with a 3,100 PHP loan from NWTF to extend her productive hours and at the same time cut fuel costs and save money in the long run. About NWTF’s Green Loan Products: Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation believes that the key to poverty alleviation for the poorest is to provide services beyond just credit. To that end, NWTF offers green energy products designed to save money for its clients. In a partnership with SunTransfer and Arc Finance, NWTF distributes solar-powered lanterns that also function as a charging station for mobile phones. These families normally use kerosene lamps to light their homes. The solar lantern offers a free, environment-friendly renewable source of energy, that allows them to reduce their monthly fuel costs. 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 Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress from earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned their respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
