Gina's story

Gina V. is a widow who lives in Purok Tuway, Brgy. Canmoros, Binalbagan, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating three business ventures: a general store, a smocking business and a ready-to-wear clothes business. Gina joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1992 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 16 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Gina has been gradually lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 19,500 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 7,500 PHP, thus improving her family's standard of living.
This time, for her 17th loan, Gina is borrowing 19,500 PHP, which she intends to use as additional capital for her business so that she could continue to save up to make improvements to her business in the future. Gina V. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
