Elena's story

Elena M. is a 36-year old married woman who supports her family by operating 3 business ventures: Videoke (Karaoke with video) , a General store and a rice retailer businesses. She lives in Brgy Poblacion, Roxas, Palawan.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2009 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her Videoke, General store and rice retailer businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 3200.

Elena is now borrowing PHP 15000 so that she could fund and sustain the operations of her Videoke business . This will be her 6th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 10000, which she paid off well within its term was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Elena aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.
