Lebina's story

Lebina L. is a 40-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating a handicrafts (basket weaving) business. She lives in Prk. II, Nangka, Argawanon, San Remegio, Bogo, Cebu.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2006 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her handicrafts (basket weaving) business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average income of PHP 6,000. Lebina is now borrowing PHP 14,000 to purchase more materials for business. This will be her fifth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 12,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Lebina aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and assures their future well being by following the Dungganon way.
