Brenda's story

Brenda P. is a married woman who lives in Hda. Banilad 1, Brgy. Nangka, EB Magalona, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating three business ventures: general store, e-loading and food vending businesses. Her husband Reynaldo, who is 52 years old, works as a Guard Supervisor to earn his living, and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have one child who is 17 years old.

Brenda joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2001 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 18 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Brenda has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 21,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 9,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 19th loan, she is borrowing PHP 24,000, which she intends to buy stock for the general store so that she can continue to save up for future home repairs and expansion of her businesses.

Brenda P. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
