A loan helped To use as additional working capital for her business.
Aylin S. is a 48-year-old married woman who lives in Guartel Enclaro, Binalbagan, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by selling fish. Aylin’s husband, Marvin, is also a fish vendor and they have three children who are between 15 and 26 years old. They have one child who is currently going to school and who also helps in the business as part of the daily chores. Their other two children are currently working for other people. Aylin S. joined NWTF-Project Dungganon (NWTF-PD) in 1995 in the hope that she would be able to help her husband improve the quality of life of their family. With the help of her loans from NWTF-PD, she has been able to increase their family income by engaging in fish vending. Now she earns an average monthly income of PHP 8,000 from her business activities. Aylin S. is a member of good standing. Her previous loan of PHP 18,000 was used to purchase a motorcycle so that they could reach more rural areas in their fish vending business, and it had a positive impact on both the business and on her family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing PHP 24,000 for her 14th loan which she intends to use as additional working capital in her fish-vending business. Aylin is working hard to achieve her dreams and aspirations for her family, which is to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life.
