Helen's story

Helen B. is a 59-year old married woman who supports her family by operating a fishing business. She lives in Purok 2, Brgy. Linaon, Cauayan , Negros Occidental.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1995 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her fishing business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average income of PHP10,000.

Helen is now borrowing PHP 18,500 for the renovation of her pump boat. This will be her 15th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP19,500, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom. Helen aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.

About NWTF: 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 from 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 to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
