A loan of $475 helped fund the operations of eggplant plantation.

Alma's story

Alma M. is a widow who lives in Sitio Maasin, Brgy. Bato, Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by running an eggplant plantation.

Alma joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2005 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 11 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Alma has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 19,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 10,000, improving the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 12th loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000, which she intends to use to buy fertilizers for the vegetables so she can continue to save up for the future education of her children. Alma M. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her 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).
