Rosemarie's story

Rosemarie B. is a 53-year-old married woman who lives in Purok 1, Brgy. Tuyom, Cauayan, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by farming and selling rice. Rosemarie’s husband, Nelson, is a farmer and pastor and they have seven children who are between 18 and 36 years old. They have one child who is currently going to school and also helps out with the business as part of their daily chores. Their other six children are already working. Rosemarie joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1992 in the hope that she would be able to help her husband improve the quality of life for their family. With the help of her loans from NWTF-PD, she has been able to increase their family income with her rice business. Now she earns an average monthly income of 15,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) from her business activities. Rosemarie is a member in good standing. Her previous loan of 29,500 PHP was used to fund the operations of her rice business, and it had a positive impact on both the business and the family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing her 16th loan, in the amount of 29,500 PHP, which she intends to use on her farming activities. Rosemarie is working hard to achieve her dreams and aspirations for her family which are to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life. Rosemarie is shown in the accompanying photo with her stockpile of rice grains that she sells.
