A loan of $275 helped purchase raw materials.

Diosila's story

Diosila G. is a 34-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating two business ventures: Pig fattening and Fish Pond businesses. She lives in MMM Village, Brgy. Miranda, Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2002 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts.

By working hard in her pig fattening and fish pond businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 6,000. Diosila is now borrowing PHP 12,000 so that she can purchase raw materials. This will be her 18th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 5,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom.

Diosila aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
