Jerima's story

"Jerima C. is a married woman who lives in Prk. 3, Bunga, Toledo City, Cebu . She earns her living by operating 2 business ventures: Sari-sari (general) store and ready to wear - direct selling business. Her husband Jonathan C., who is 41 years old, works as carpenter for a living. They have 3 children, ages 11 to 18.

Jerima joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2005 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 10 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Jerima has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 14000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 34000, improving the family's standard of living. This time, for her 11th loan, she is borrowing PHP 20000, with which she intends to purchase more stock to sell, so she can continue to save for house renovations in future.

Jerima C. 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). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress from earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
