Elisa's story

Elisa B. is a widow who lives in Barangay 8, Isabela, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a food vending (native delicacies) business. Elisa joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1999 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 18 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Elisa has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 15,000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 9,000 PHP, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 19th loan, she is borrowing 15,000 PHP, which she intends to use to buy ingredients for the food she makes so that she can continue to save up for future home repairs. Elisa B. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward 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 out of 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 to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
