Yolanda's story

Yolanda M. is a 53-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating two business ventures: food vending/processing and buying and selling of ginger. She lives in Prk. Maligaya, Brgy. Magara, Roxas, Palawan.

She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2005 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her food vending/processing and ginger businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 4,240.

Yolanda is borrowing PHP 10,000 so that she can purchase more stock to sell. This will be her fifth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 9,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom. Yolanda aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
