A loan of $1,150 helped expand inventory.


Dioscora's story

Dioscora Q. is 46-years old, married and supports her family by operating a general store. She lives in Purok 5, Brgy. Malabuhan, Siaton, Negros Oriental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1999 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 15,000. Dioscora is borrowing PHP 49,500 so that she can increase her inventory. This will be her 18th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 49,500, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Dioscora aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.

About NWTF: In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress from earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams.
