Rosemarie's story

Rosemarie L., 29 years old, is a married woman who supports her family by fish vending. She lives in Sto. Catinggib, Barangay Suay, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, with her husband and their three children who are between 5 and 10 years old and still studying.

Rosemarie has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2000 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her fish-vending business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of Php 18,000.

Rosemarie is now borrowing Php 12,000 so that she is able to expand her fish-vending business. This will be her 15th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of Php 10,000 was paid off within its term and was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom.

Rosemarie aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the “Dungganon” way.
