Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth G. is a widow who lives in Common, Brgy. Daan Banwa, Kabankalan City, Negros Ocidental. She earns her living by operating 2 business ventures: selling coconut candy and a pig fattening business. She has 9 children who are 20 to 40 years old with 6 of her children having their own family while her other 3 children are working and helping out with some of the family needs.

Elizabeth joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1999 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 17 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Elizabeth has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 18,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 5,000, thus uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 18th cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000 which she intends to use to purchase raw materials so that she could continue to save up for future house repairs and the family's needs. Elizabeth G. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
