A loan of $350 helped to purchase more stock.

Amalia's story

Amalia P. is a married woman who lives in Malocbaloc, Barangay Agujo, Daanbantayan, Cebu. She earns her living by operating a general store business. Her husband Manuel P., who is 50 years old, works as a security guard to earn his living. They have four children who are between 17 and 25 years old.

Amalia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2009 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past two loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Amalia has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 6,000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 2,000 PHP, uplifting her family's standard of living. This time, for her third loan, she is borrowing 15,000 PHP. She intends to use it to purchase more stock to sell, so that she can continue to save up for the future construction of a house and improvement of her living condition. Amalia P. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
