Jenny Ann's story

Jenny Ann R. is a married woman who lives in La Castellana, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating 2 business ventures: a general store and pig fattening business. Her husband Jolo , who is 37 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have 3 children who are between the ages of 7 and 12 years old.

Jenny Ann joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2002 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 16 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Jenny Ann has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 15,000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 8,000 PHP, increasing the family's standard of living. This time, for her 17th cycle loan, she is borrowing 17,000 PHP, which she intends to use to buy stocks for the store so that she could continue to save up for future education of her children. Jenny Ann R. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
