Corsine's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped For additional working capital.
Corsine F. is a married woman who lives in Brgy. Poblacion, Oslob, Cebu. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: fish vending and pig fattening businesses. Her husband, Carlito F. Sr., age 31, works as a fisherman to earn his living. They have three children who are 5 to 10 years old. This picture was taken after the center meeting because her fish business was already sold out early in the morning. Corsine joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2008 because she wanted something better for her family. With the help of her past four loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, and by the sweat of her brow, Corsine has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty. Her previous loan of 12,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 8,000; thus, improving the family's standard of living. This time, for her fifth loan, she is borrowing PHP 15,000, which she intends to use as additional capital for her fish vending business. She will continue to save up for the future and meet the daily needs of her family. Corsine F. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams. 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 on a member of a community who has earned respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
