A loan of $475 helped additional working capital.

Floramie's story

Floramie T. is a married woman who lives in Sitio Bungtod, Brgy. Manlayao, Danao City, Cebu. She earns her living by operating three business ventures: pig fattening, a general store and Jeepney transportation. Her husband, Arsenio T. Jr., who is 41 years old, works as a Jeepney driver to earn his living, and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have two children, who are 14 and 18 years old.

Floramie 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, Floramie has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loans from NWTF helped her increase their family's monthly income to 30,800 Philippines pesos (PHP), uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her fourth loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000, which she intends to use as additional working capital for her various business activities so that she can continue to save up for the future security of her family and to save up to increase her working capital for future business expansion.

Floramie T. is a Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means honorable) woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
