A loan of $325 helped additional working capital for pig fattening and farming needs.

Victoria's story

Victoria N. is a married woman who lives in Brgy. Sacsac, Dalaguete, Cebu. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: pig fattening and farming businesses. Her husband, Zacarias N., 57 years old, works as a carpenter to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business. They have four children who are 20 to 31 years old.

Victoria joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2004 because she hoped for something better for her family. Victoria has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow and with the help of her past 11 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of 7,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 6,000; thus, improving the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 12th loan cycle, she is borrowing 15,000 PHP, which she intends to use for her livestock and to purchase fertilizer for farming so that she can continue to save up for future additional capital for her business. Victoria N. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
