A loan of $625 helped additional business capital.

Florentina's story

Florentina A. is a married woman who lives in Prk.Tikoy, Brgy. Bogo, Argao, Cebu. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: abaca weaving and Ready-to-Wear clothes businesses. Her husband Modesto A., who is 65 years old, works as a laborer to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have four children who are 34 to 42 years old.

Florentina joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2005 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 11 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Florentina has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 27,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 20,000, thus uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 12th loan, she is borrowing PHP 27,000 which she intends to use as additional business capital so that she can continue to save up for the future.

Florentina A. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
