Analiza S. is a 33-year-old married woman who supports her family with a pig fattening business. She lives in Brgy. Atop-atop, Bantayan, Cebu City with her husband and their eight children, who are currently going to school.
Analiza has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2000 and has improved her living conditions with the help of loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her pig fattening business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of 5,000 Philippine pesos (PHP).
Analiza is borrowing 29,000 PHP for additional working capital. This will be her 16th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of 29,000 PHP (which she paid off well within its term) was just another step on her journey towards economic freedom. Analiza hopes to improve her family’s living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
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 on a member of a community who has earned respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
