A loan of $350 helped to fund her fish vending business.

Flordeliz's story

Flordeliz G. earns her living by operating a fish vending business. Her husband, Wilfredo G., age 52, helps his wife with her business. They have six children who between the ages of 6 and 13 years old. The family lives in Brgy. Poblacion, Oslob, Cebu.

Flordeliz joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2008 because she aspired toward something better for her family. With the help of her past four loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Flordeliz has been working hard and incrementally lifting her family out of poverty. Her previous loan of PHP 12,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 7,500, thus raising the family's standard of living. This time, for her fifth cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 15,000, which she intends to use to fund her business operations so that she can continue to save up for the future of her children's education. Flordeliz G. is truly a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
