A loan of $400 helped to buy fishing nets and supplies.

Jennifer's story

Jennifer is a married woman who lives in E.B. Magalona, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating 2 business ventures: fishing and a ready-to-wear business. Her husband Ramie B., who is 30 years old, works as a fisherman to earn income. They have 4 children between 11 to 15 years old, who are currently going to school.

Jennifer joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2008 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 4 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Jennifer has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 12,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 3,500, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 5th loan, she is borrowing PHP 17,000, which she intends to use to purchase fishing nets so that she can continue to save up for future family needs and for her children's education. Jennifer is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
