Justina Q. is a 53-year-old married woman who lives in Brgy Olympia, Bais City, Negros Oriental. She earns her living by fishing, fish vending and pig fattening. Justina’s 55-year-old husband, Wilfredo, is a fisherman, and they have five children who are between 13 and 30 years old. One of their children works as a Loan Officer and is presently assigned in Santander Branch Cebu. Two of the children currently go to school and also help their parents in the business as part of their daily chores.

Justina joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1999 in the hope that she would be able to help her husband improve the quality of life for their family. With the help of her loans from NWTF, she has been able to increase her family income by engaging in fishing, fish vending and pig fattening. Now she earns an average monthly income of 9,000 PHP from her business activities.

Justina is a member of good standing. Her previous loan of 18,000 PHP was used to fund the operation of her fishing business, and it had a positive impact in both the business and the family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing 18,000 PHP for her 14th loan, which she intends to use on fishing, fish vending and pig fattening. Justina is working hard to achieve her dreams and aspirations for her family, which are to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life.
