Celedonia's story

Celedonia F. is a single woman who lives in Brgy. Calapi, Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating one business venture: a general store. Celedonia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2000 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 23 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Celedonia has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 29,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 15,000, thus uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 24th loan, she is borrowing PHP 30,000, which she intends to use to buy more stock for her general store so that she can continue to save up for future home repairs and expansion of the business.

Celedonia F. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
