Nenita's story

Nenita S. is a married woman who lives in Barangay Basak, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu. She earns her living by operating 4 business ventures: a Sari-Sari Store, Food Vending, Electronic Re-Loading and a Water Vending business. Her husband, Ricardo S., who is shown in the accompanying picture, is 34 years old. He helps his wife in running the businesses. They have no children.

Nenita joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2008 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 7 cycle loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Nenita has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 20000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 50,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 8th cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 29500, which she intends to use to purchase more stocks to sell in her various businesses. Nenita S. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
