Susan's story

Susan R. is a 44-year old married woman who lives in Barangay Prosperidad, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by selling fruits and vegetables and by making bags. Her husband, Igmedio, who is 48 years old, helps his wife in running the businesses. They have one child who is 12 years old and currently goes to school.

Susan joined NWTF-Project Dungganon (NWTF-PD) in 1998 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 by selling fruits and vegetables and by making bags. Now she earns an average monthly income of Php 10,000 from her business activities.

Susan is a member of good standing. Her previous loan of Php 49,500 was used to fund operations of her fruits and vegetables business as well as her bag-making business and it had a positive impact on both the businesses and the family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing Php 55,000 for her 18th loan which she intends to use as additional working capital.

Susan 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.
