A loan of $550 helped additional working capital.


Conchita's story

Conchita P. is a 57-year-old married woman who supports her family by engaging in pig fattening, selling ready-to-wear clothes and being a beauty product dealer. She lives in Tabugon, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental with her husband and their three children who are between 17 and 21 years old and are currently going to school.

She 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 at her pig fattening, ready-to-wear clothes and beauty products business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of Php 8,000.

Conchita is now borrowing Php 25,000 so that she can use it as an additional working capital for her pig fattening and ready-to-wear business. This will be her 18th cycle loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of Php 25,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom. Conchita aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the “Dungganon” way.

About NWTF: In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress out of earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
