A loan of $350 helped purchase more ice cream to sell.


Magdalena's story

Magdalena D. is 58 years old and married. She supports her family by operating a business as a dealer of French ice cream. She lives in Vallega Street, Brgy. 1, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2002 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her ice cream business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 5,000.

Magdalena is now borrowing PHP 15,000 so that she can purchase more stock to sell. This will be her 14th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 14,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Magdalena aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
