Tessie's story

Tessie A. is a 43 year old widow who supports her family by engaging in raising ducks for sale and selling eggs. She lives in Prk Calumpang, Barangay Mabini, Valladolid, Negros Occidental with her 4 adult children.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2002 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her raising of ducks for sale and selling of eggs, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP10,000.

Tessie is now borrowing PHP20,000 so that she can continue to raise ducks and eggs for sale. This will be her 14th cycle loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP20,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom. Tessie aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the “Dungganon” way.
