Victoriana joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2008 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 7 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Victoriana has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 17,000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 30,000 PHP, increasing the family's standard of living. This time, for her 8th loan, she is borrowing 18,000 PHP, which she intends to use to purchase raw materials for sewing so that she could continue to save up for the future to increase their income and save for the future her family. Victoriana is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
