A loan of $350 helped tricycle maintenance and more stock for the store.

Juicy's story

Juicy P. is a married woman who lives in Sitio. Canonoy, Brgy. Miranda, Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating two business ventures, a tricycle transport business and a general store. Her husband Jerry P., who is 39 years old, works as a tricycle driver to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have nine children who are between the ages of 18 and 27.

Juicy joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2002 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 12 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Juicy has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 10,000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of about $140, thus raising the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 13th cycle loan, she is borrowing 15,000 PHP which she intends to use for the maintenance of their tricycles and to purchase more stock for her general store so that she can continue to save up for the education of her children. Juicy P. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
