Dolores's story

Dolores T. is a married woman who lives in Bago, Cogon, Compostela, Cebu City. She earns her living by operating 3 business ventures: hog raising, general store and ready to wear businesses. Her husband Moncito T., who is 53 years old, works in San Miguel Corp to earn his living.
They have 6 children who are between the ages of 12 to 25 years old, 2 children have their own family, 2 are working and 1 is currently going to school.

Dolores joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2005 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 12 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Dolores has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of 20,000 PHP helped her earn a monthly profit of 5,000 PHP, improving the family's standard of living. This time, for her 13th loan, she is borrowing 23,000 PHP, which she intends to use as funds in her business operations so that she can continue to save up for the future to have own store in the market. Dolores T. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
