Ma. Corazon is a married woman who lives in Bago City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a business buying and selling rice grains. Her husband Alfredo G. D., who is 46 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living. He also helps with his wife's business activities. They have 2 children who are 26 and 28 years old – one is married and one is currently working.
Ma. Corazon joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2010 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Ma. Corazon has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 5000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 10000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 2nd loan, she is borrowing PHP 10000, which she intends to use to purchase more stock of palay and rice so that she can continue to save to provide a better life and future for her family.
Ma. Corazon 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).
