Azucena's story

Azucena M. is a 56-year-old married woman who supports her family with a hog-fattening business. She lives in Sitio Daan Banwa, Brgy. Su-ay, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental.

Azucena has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1989 and has improved her living conditions with the help of loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her hog fattening business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average income of 15,000 Philippine pesos (PHP).

Azucena is borrowing 29,500 PHP so that she can buy an additional hog for future income. This will be her 22nd loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of 29,500 PHP (which she paid off well within its term) was just another step on her journey towards economic freedom. Azucena hopes to improve her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
