Guillerma's story

Guillerma L. is a widow who lives in Sitio Atabay, Brgy. San Isidro, Calatrava, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: general store and livestock.

Guillerma joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1993 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 17 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Guillerma has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 19,500 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 4,800, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 18th loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000, which she intends to use to buy stocks for the general store and piglets to raise so that she can continue to save up for the future improvement of business.

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