Rosalie A. is a married woman who supports her family by manufacturing pots and other products made of clay. She lives in Barangay Tuburan, in Hinigaran, Negros Occidental with her husband who works as a security guard, and their 4 children who are between ages 4-15. Three children still attend school.
Rosalie has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2002 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her business manufacturing clay products, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 11,200.
Rosalie is now requesting a PHP 15,000 loan in order to manufacture more clay products. This will be her 11th loan with NWTF-Project Dungganon. Rosalie aspires to improve her family’s living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the “Dungganon” way.
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 out of 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 to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
