Hayde Rose's story

Hayde Rose B. is a married woman who lives in Brgy. Manghanoy, La Castellana, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating three business ventures: rice farming, food vending (bananaque) and livestock businesses. Her husband, Fidel, who is 45 years old, works as a farm laborer to earn his living, and also helps with his wife's business activities. They have two children who are 15 and 17 years old.

Hayde Rose joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2003, because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 21 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Hayde Rose has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 29,500 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 7,800 PHP, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 22nd cycle loan, she is borrowing 29,500 PHP, which she intends to use to maintain her rice field and buy stock for her food vending business so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children and the expansion of her business. Hayde Rose B. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
