Luciana's story

Luciana D. is a married woman who lives in Cordova, Brgy. Cogon, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu. She earns her living by operating a business venture: a vegetable vending business. Her husband Wensislao D., who is 47 years old, helps his wife in running the business. They have 5 children who are 7 to 23 years old.

Luciana joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2009 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 2 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Luciana has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 6,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 20,000, thus uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 3rd cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 11,000 which she intends to use as additional capital for her business so that she can continue to save up for the future and expand her business. Luciana D. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards 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.
