A loan of $625 helped fertilizers and other goods to sell in her store.

Angelica's story

A natural entrepreneur with her finger in many pies.

At 54, Angelica B. is married with 3 adult-age children and lives in Purok Paghidaet, Calumangan, Bago City, Negros Occidental.

Deciding to follow in her parents' footsteps, Angelica and her husband started a piggery business as their main source of income. When she joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2000, her husband encouraged her to venture in other businesses to supplement their income from the piggery. With the loans she borrowed from NWTF-Project Dungganon over the last nine years, she has added other businesses like raising chickens and a "sari-sari", or general store, to her roster of business ventures.

Angelica admits that she has learned a lot from her membership in Project Dungganon, which continues to guide her how to improve her management skills and expand her business acumen.

For this particular loan of PHP 29,500, Angelica plans to purchase fertilizers and other goods to resell to her neighbors and the neighboring farms in her community.
