Melinda's story

Melinda is 46-years old married and supports her family by operating two business ventures: food vending and fish vending businesses. She lives in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1998 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her fish vending and food vending businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 9000. Melinda is borrowing PHP 22500 so that she could purchase more stocks to sell. This will be her 19th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 22500, which she paid off well within its term was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Melinda aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way. 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 to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
