A loan of $350 helped to purchase additional inventory for a general store.

Nenita's story

Nenita S. is a 56-year-old mother with five grown-up children. She works hard to achieve her simple dreams: to improve the living conditions of her family and to send her youngest child to college to have a good job. Nenita lives in the village of Sitio Nasug-ong, Brgy Caradio-an, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental. Her husband, Oscar, helps her in the business but only for a limited amount of time because he also has a job.

Because Nenita wanted to help her husband improve their living conditions, she joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in the year 2000 and started her own business. She put up a general store adjacent to her house where it helps her to meet their household needs. As the loans continued, she also invested in a networking business with Avon, Natasha and MSE products. With this additional income, she earns 7000 Philippine pesos (PHP) per month, most of which is saved for college education and household needs.

Nenita's previous loan of 16,000 PHP was used as additional capital for her general store business. This loan was repaid to NWTF-PD in full and on time. Presently, with a loan of 16,000 PHP, she purchased additional inventory for her general store and networking business.
