Guillerma joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 in the hope that she would be able to help her husband improve the quality of life of their family. With the help of her loans from NWTF-PD she has been able to increase their family income by engaging in her business. Now she earns an average monthly income of $90 from her business activities.

Guillerma is a member in good standing. Her previous loan of 11,000 PHP was used to fund the operations of her general store, and it had a positive impact on both the business and the family’s living conditions. Now she is on her 9th cycle loan which she intends to use as working capital for her general store. Guillerma is working hard to achieve her dreams and aspirations for her family, which is to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life.
