Rosita joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1990 to help her husband improve their family's quality of life. With the assistance of her loans from NWTF-PD, she has been able to increase their family income by starting a fishing business, now earning an average monthly income of Php10,000.
A member in good standing, Rosita's previous loan of Php29,500 was used to fund operations for her fishing business and had a positive impact on both the business and the family’s living conditions. Now requesting her 16th loan in the amount of Php29,500, which she intends to use as additional working capital, Rosita is working hard to achieve her dreams for her family, which are to provide them with a brighter future and a more comfortable life.
In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress out of earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed on a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
