Adoracion's story

Adoracion J. is a 56-year-old married woman who lives in DSB, Pontevedra, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a general store business. Adoracion’s husband, Marino, aged 62, is a laborer and they have three children who are aged between 30 and 35. All her children have their own jobs and help their parents in defraying financial and other family expenses.

Adoracion joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2004 in the hope that she would be able to help her husband improve their family's quality of life. With the help of her loans from NWTF-PD, she has been able to increase their family income by engaging in a general store. Now she earns an average monthly income of PHP 10,000 from her business activities.

Adoracion is a member of good standing. Her previous loan of PHP 14,000 was used to fund the operations of her general store, and it had a positive impact on both the business and the family’s living conditions. Now she is borrowing PHP 15,000 for her fourteenth cycle loan which she intends to use to invest in her general store business. Adoracion 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.
