A loan of $275 helped to purchase extra pigs and feed.

Anesia's story

Anesia M. is a married woman who lives in Brgy. Oguis, Danao, Cebu. She earns her living by operating two businesses: a pig fattening operation and a farm. Her husband, Jose M., who is 51, works as a farmer and also helps in his wife's businesses. They have three children, who are between 17 and 31 years old. Anesia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2009 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past three loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Anesia has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 9000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 12000, raising the family's standard of living. This time, for her fourth loan, she is borrowing PHP 12000, which she intends to use to purchase additional pigs and feed so that she can continue to saving for the future. Anesia M. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
