Nenita's story

Nenita C. is 68 years old and is a very happy mother because she is able to achieve her dreams for her family, especially her children. Nenita lives in Prk Masinadyahon and is married to a pensioner, Victor C.. They have six children who are grown and have their own families, with a total of 19 grandchildren. In spite of her age, she continues her business because this is the bread and butter of her family.

Her husband used to work as a carpenter in a milling company with an income that was not enough to compensate for household expenses. She engaged herself in different types of businesses like fish vending, farm work, selling of native delicacies from other barangays and would do laundry for their neighbor to help her husband with expenses. At the wee hours of the morning, Nenita would start her daily routine of taking care of her children while preparing for her businesses. In 1999, she became a member of NWTF-PD and her loan was used for her general store which was adjacent to her house. She also sold different viands to her husband's company. With this additional income for her family, she was able to send her children to school. Luckily, her business did well and she was able to earn PHP 9,000 that month, which was used for savings and to defray some family expenses.

Nenita continues to loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 15,000 was used as an additional capital for her general store. She paid for this particular loan on time without any delay. Borrowing the same amount of PHP 15,000, she will be buying additional working inventory for her general store and the income from it will be used for family improvements and other investments.
