Marina's story

Marina R., 55 years old, is a widowed woman who supports her family by engaging in buying and selling seaweed. She lives in Brgy Dungo-an Manjuyod, Negros Oriental with her two adult children.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1999 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her seaweed buy and sell business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 28,000.

Marina is now borrowing PHP 18,000 so that she can continue her buy and sell business. This will be her 15th cycle loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 18,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Marina aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the “Dungganon” way.
