Macaria's story

Macaria A. is a single woman who lives in Balirong, Naga City, Cebu. She earns her living by operating food vending, BBQ and bakery businesses. Macaria joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2006 because she aspired to something better for her family. With the help of her past seven loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Macaria 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 18,000, uplifting her family's standard of living. This time, for her eighth cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 18,000, which she intends to use as additional working capital for her current businesses as well as enough capital to a open a new business so she can continue to save up for her family's future security. Macaria A. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
