Hayde C. is a widow who lives in Shopping, Fabrica, Sagay City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating 2 business ventures: RTW (ready-to-wear) and frozen foods businesses.
Hayde joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1993 because she wished for something better for her family. With the help of her past 12 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Hayde has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 19,500 Philippine pesos (PHP) helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 8,000 - uplifting the family's standard of living.
This time, for her 13th cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 19,500 which she intends to use to buy additional frozen foods and stocks for her RTW businesses so that she can continue to save up for expanding them. Hayde C. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
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.
