A loan of $250 helped to buy stock for her store and maintain her peanut grinder.

Nenita's story

Nenita O. is a 58-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating three businesses: grinding peanuts, selling peanuts and running a general store. She lives in Purok 7, Barangay Bantayan, which is a part of Kabankalan City in the Negros Occidental province of the Visayas islands. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2000 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard at her three businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of 9000 PHP.

Nenita is now borrowing 10,000 PHP so that she can purchase more stock to sell in her general store and maintain her peanut grinder. This will be her fifteenth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of 6000 PHP, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Nenita aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well being by following the Dungganon way.
