A loan of $225 helped additional clothes and materials for tailoring.


Raymunda's story

Raymunda P. is a married woman who supports her family through her dressmaking and tailoring business. She lives in Bongalanon, Basay, Negros Oriental with her husband Jose. He is 58 years old and works as a fisherman. They have eight children, some of whom are working and some are currently going to school.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1999 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her dressmaking/tailoring business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of $68.

Raymunda is now borrowing 10,000 PHP so that she can buy additional clothes and materials for tailoring. This will be her 7th cycle loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of 8,000 PHP, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Raymunda aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future well being by following the “Dungganon” way.
