John Deere's story

John Deere M. is a married man who lives in Brgy, Orong, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental. He earns his living by operating three business ventures: motorcycle operator, buy and sell of livestock and charcoal. His wife, Helen M., who is 40 years old, works as a housewife and helps her husband in the business activities. They have two children who are 13 and 20 years old. John Deere joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2006 because he aspired for something better for his family. With the help of his past three loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, John Deere has been incrementally lifting his family out of poverty by the sweat of his brow. His previous loan of PHP 19,500 helped him earn a monthly profit of PHP 8,800, thus uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for his fourth loan, he is borrowing PHP 29,500, which he intends to use to fund his business operations so that he could continue to save up for the future of his family and the business. John Deere M. is a Dungganon man who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of his dreams. 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. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
