Marcosa's story

Marcosa C. is a married woman who lives in Brgy. Jolomaynon, Dalaguete, Cebu. She earns her living by vegetable farming. Her husband Theodoro, who is 43 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living, and also helps in his wife's business activities. They have four children who are 15 to 25 years old. Marcosa joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 7 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Marcosa has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 22,000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 16,000 PHP, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 8th cycle loan, she is borrowing 23,000 PHP, which she intends to use as additional working capital for the vegetable farm so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children. Marcosa C. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams. About NWTF: In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF), is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress from earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
