Rosela's story

Rosela N. is a 56-year old woman who lives in Common Brgy Daan Banua, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by running a general store, selling fish and shrimp. Her husband, Jacinto, is 59 and the caretaker of a fish pond. They have four children between 22 and 33 years old. Three of their children are currently employed while the other one just graduated from college.

Rosela joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1992 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 with her fish store. She now earns an average monthly income of Php 28,000.

Rosela is a member of good standing. Her previous loan of Php 25,000 was used to fund operations for her fish vending business which had a positive impact on both the business and on the family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing for her 17th cycle loan, the amount of Php 27,000, which she intends to use on her general store. Rosela 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.
