Gaylee's story

Gaylee D. is a married woman who lives in Prk Sambag, Brgy. Bonifacio, Cadiz City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a sari-sari (or general store) business. Her husband Orlando D. Jr., who is 41 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living, and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have two children who are 17 and 18 years old.

Gaylee joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2004 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past seven loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Gaylee has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 17,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 4000, uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her eighth loan, she is borrowing PHP 21,000, which she intends to use as additional capital for her sari-sari store so that she could continue to save up for future needs for her family.

Gaylee D. is a Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means "honorable") woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
