A loan of $500 helped additional working capital.

Leah's story

Leah T. is 43-year-old married woman and supports her family by operating one business venture: buying and selling household appliances. She lives in Purok Doridad, Brgy Plaridel, Sagay City, Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2004 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts.

By working hard in her buying and selling of household appliances, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 4000. Leah is now borrowing PHP 21,000 to use as additional working capital for the business. This will be her 11th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 19,500, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Leah aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
