Marigold's story

Marigold is a married woman who lives in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a sari-sari (general) store. Her husband Edgardo, who is 33 years old, works as a driver to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have four children who are 8 to 12 years old. Marigold joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past eight loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Marigold has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 21,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 4,000, thus uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her ninth loan, she is borrowing PHP 25,000 to purchase more stock to sell so that she can continue to save up for their future, for their daily needs & for the education of their children. Marigold 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 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 upon a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
