A loan of $350 helped to have revolving capital for her general store.

Daisy's story

Daisy N. is 47 years old and a mother of nine children - of which, two are in high school, one is in grade school and the rest are grown. She is married to Reynaldo N., a 52 year-old farmer. Daisy, together with her husband, work hard to earn and provide for the future of her children. The family lives in the village of Sto. Cagay, Brgy. Su-ay, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental.

Daisy joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1991 and testifies that it was through NWTF-Project Dungganon that she has achieved some of her dreams - to be able to send her children to school, have her own business to supplement the income that her husband earns as a farmer, and to have some savings for the future.

She started her business by selling fruits (bananas, etc.), which were delivered by a wholesaler, to their neighbors from a stand set up outside her house. Later, she expanded her product offerings, including groceries and other commodities. Additionally, she raised pigs in her backyard. Her business activities earned about PHP 8,000 per month, which was significant in helping to improve her family's quality of life.

Her previous 8th cycle loan amounting to PHP 14,000. She paid back the loan in full and on-time without any delays in any of the weekly installments. She is now borrowing PHP 16,000 for her 9th cycle loan. She plans to use the money as revolving capital to offer more products in her "sari-sari", also known as a "general store". She intends to use the profits from this loan cycle to pay for her children's tuition and to provide them with their daily allowance.
