A loan of $450 helped additional working capital for business.

Nida's story

Nida P. is a widow who lives in Park Kambiakeke, Barangay Guiwanon, Bantayan, Cebu City. She earns her living by operating three business ventures. She has a crab meat vending business, a dried fish vending business and she also operates a sari-sari (general) store.

Nida joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1999 because she wanted something better for her family. With the help of her past nineteen loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Nida has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 19,500 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of about $554, raising the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 20th loan, she is borrowing 19,500 PHP, which she intends to use as additional working capital so that she can continue to save up for the future of her family and her businesses and for the education of their future children. Nida P. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
