A loan helped To purchase fishing gear and equipment.
Aida is a 38-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating fishing and fish vending businesses. She lives in Daan Bantayan, Cebu. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2007 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her fishing and fish vending businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 4,500. Aida is borrowing PHP 13,000 to purchase fishing gear and equipment. This will be her fifth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 13,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Aida 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 upon a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
