Glenda's story

Glenda P. is a 52-year-old married woman who lives in Prk Luna, Brgy Mabini, Valladolid, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by keeping a vegetable plantation and selling the products.

Glenda’s 57-year-old husband, Danilo, is a farmer, and they have 4 children who are adults while the others are currently going to school and also help their parents in the business as part of their daily chores.

Glenda joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2000 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. Now she earns an average monthly income of Php 40,000 from her business activities.

Glenda is a member of good standing. Her previous loan of Php 15,000 was used to fund operations of her vegetable plantation, and it had a positive impact in both the business and the family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing for her 15th cycle loan, in the amount of Php 20,000, which she intends to use on her vegetable plantation and in selling the products. Glenda is working hard to achieve her dreams and aspirations for her family, which is to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life.
