Amparo's story

Amparo is a married woman who lives in Toledo City, Cebu. She earns her living by operating a food production sales business. Her husband Sabas, who is 54 years old, works as a driver to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have four children who are 21 to 27 years old. Amparo joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2009 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past three loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Amparo has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 9,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 3,200, thus uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her fourth loan, she is borrowing PHP 11,000 to buy ingredients for her food vending business so that she can continue to save up for future business expansion and to earn more income. Amparo 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.
