A loan of $475 helped fund the operations of her Mango and Banana plantation.

Evelyn's story

Evelyn P. is a married woman who lives in Prk. Malinawun, Brgy. Mabini, Escalante City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a business venture: Mango and Banana plantation business. Her husband Diosdado, who is 53 years old, works as a Farmer to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have four children who are 23 to 29 years old.

Evelyn joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1996 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 15 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Evelyn has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 19,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 7,500, thus uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 16th cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 19,500 which she intends to use to buy pesticides and equipment for her mango plantation so that she could continue to save up for future home repairs and the expansion of her business. Evelyn P. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
