Annabel's story

Annabel L. is a married woman who lives in Sitio Toril, Bocana, Ilog, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: a small pharmacy and a Nipa business. Her husband Gilbert, who is 48 years old, works as a driver to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have two children who are 24 and 26 years old.

Annabel joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2001 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past ten loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Annabel has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty. Her previous loan of PHP 22,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 5,000, thus raising the family's standard of living. This time, for her 11th cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 26,000 which she intends to use to purchase more stock to sell so that she could continue to save up for her family's future and for improvements in their house.

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