Floralie E. is a married woman who lives in Treplin, Barangay Binaobao, Bantayan, Cebu. She earns her living from a vegetable-vending business. Her husband, Lumelo E., who is 34 years old, is a businessman and also helps in his wife's business. They have four children who are from 6 to 14 years old and are currently going to school.
Floralie joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2000 because she wished for something better for her family. With the help of her past six loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, she has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 15,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 8,000, uplifting her family's standard of living.
This time, for her 7th loan, Floralie is borrowing PHP 15,000, which she intends to use as an additional capital to buy stock so that she can continue to save for the future to buy a delivery truck.
Floralie is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress out of earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
