A loan of $250 helped additional capital for business.

Daisy's story

Daisy D. is a married woman who lives in Brgy. Poblacion, Sibonga, Cebu. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: livestock and food processing. Her husband Rodrigo D., who is 36 years old, works as a carpenter to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have six children who range from 13 to 18 years old.

Daisy joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past five loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Daisy has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 9,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 6,000, thus uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her sixth loan, she is borrowing PHP 10,000, which she intends to use as additional capital for her business so that she can continue to save up for the future and for her children to finish their educations.

Daisy D. is a Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means "honorable") woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
