Jenelyn's story

Jenelyn T. is a married woman who lives in Brgy. 4, Sipalay City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating 3 business ventures: Videoke rental, coconut shell sales and fish vending. Her husband Jenises, who is 31 years old, works as a Security Guard to earn his living, and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have 3 children who are 8 to 10 years old.



Jenelyn joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2004 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 11 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Jenelyn has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 8000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 5000 PHP, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 12th loan cycle, she is borrowing 15000 PHP, with which she intends to purchase one more videoke machine. This will increase her income and she will continue to save up for the future improvement of their house and the education of their children. Jenelyn T. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
