Salvacion's story

Salvacion D. is a 70-year-old widow who supports her family by selling dried fish. She lives in Pader, Brgy Aguisan, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental with her 7 adult children who are 28 - 43 years old.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1998. She has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her dried fish vending business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 20,000.

Salvacion is now borrowing PHP 26,000 so that she can expand her business. This will be her 20th cycle loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 18,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom. Salvacion aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the “Dungganon” way.
