Margie's story

Margie B. is 35-years old, married and supports her family by operating a general store business. She lives in Purok Renon, Brgy. 9, Isabela , Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1997 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her general store business, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 15,000.

Margie is now borrowing PHP 25,000 so that she could continue to purchase more stock to sell. This will be her 13th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 23,000, which she paid off well within its term was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Margie aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
