Nomeriana's story

Nomeriana S. is a 62-year old widow who supports her family by operating a candle making and selling business. She lives in Buntol, Brgy. Montañeza, Malabuyoc, Cebu. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2004 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her candle making and selling business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 5,000. Nomeriana is now borrowing PHP 10,000 so that she can purchase raw materials. This will be her ninth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 7,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Nomeriana aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
