A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase baking supplies wholesale.

Ana's story

Ana I. is a 57-year old married woman who supports her family by baking cakes. She lives in South Bag in the barangay of Mangnao, a part of Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental province on the western Visayas islands. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2007 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her cake baking business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of 59,800 PHP from her baking business.

Ana is borrowing 49,000 PHP so that she can buy baking supplies wholesale. This will be her tenth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of 29,500 PHP, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey towards economic freedom. Ana aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
