Lorena's story

Lorena C., 37 years old, is a married woman who supports her family by fishing and fish vending. She lives in Canlinday, Barangay Culipapa, Hinoba-an, Negros Occidental, with her husband, Cesar, who is a 38 year-old fisherman, and their five children, four of whom are currently going to school while the youngest is still a baby.

Lorena has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2003 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her fishing and fish-vending business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of Php 5,000.

Lorena is now borrowing Php 25,000 as additional capital for her fishing and fish-vending business. This will be her 10th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of Php 15,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom.

Lorena aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the “Dungganon” way.
