A loan of $250 helped to fund the operations of her cosmetics business.

Beverly's story

Beverly Gil S. is a married woman who lives in Bagumbayan, Mactan, Cordova, Cebu . She earns her living by operating 2 business ventures: selling cosmetics products (Avon and Natasha) and ready-to-wear clothing. Her husband, Redentor, 31 years old, earns his living as a production worker. They have 2 children, 6 and 7 years old.

Beverly Gil joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2010 because she hoped for something better for her family. With the help of her past loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon and her own efforts, Beverly Gil has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty. Her previous loan of PHP 5,000 helped her increase her monthly income to PHP 8,000, raising the family's standard of living. This time, for her 2nd cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 10,000, which she intends to use for additional capital for her business (RTW & Beauty Products) in order to continue to save up for future home repairs and her children's education. Beverly Gil S. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
