Wilma's story

Wilma Y. is a 41-year-old married woman who supports her family by engaging in a general store and a pig-fattening business. She lives in Barangay Polo, Tanjay City, Negros Oriental with her husband and their 20-year-old child who is still currently going to school.

Wilma 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 general store and pig-fattening businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of Php 4,000.

Wilma is now borrowing Php 18,000 so that she can continue her general store and pig-fattening businesses. This will be her 10th 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 towards economic freedom. Wilma aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the “Dungganon” way.
