Chrislene's story

Chrislene D. is a 30 year-old woman who supports her family by breeding and selling balot (fertilized duck eggs). She lives with her with common-law husband and a child who is a year and four months old.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2007 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her balot business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of Php 6,000.

Chrislene is borrowing Php 12,000 to use as additional working capital. This will be her fifth cycle loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of Php 9,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom. Chrislene aspires to elevate her family’s living conditions and ensure its future well-being by following the “Dungganon” way.

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 bestowed on a community member who has earned respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
