Crispina's story

Crispina C. is a married woman who lives in Prk. 3, Brgy. Canalum, Siaton, Negros Oriental. She earns her living by operating a rice farm business. Her husband Alberto C., who is 68 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have two children who are 43 and 41 years old. Crispina joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2000 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 17 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Crispina 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 9,000, thus uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 18th loan, she is borrowing PHP 15,000, which she intends to use to buy fertilizer for her rice field to save up for future improvements of her business. Crispina C. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path towards the achievement of her dreams.
