A loan of $600 helped to fund business operations.


Connie's story

Connie is a 30-year-old widow who supports her family by operating 2 businesses: a general store and a carinderia (a local eatery). She lives in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental. Connie has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2006 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her two businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 12,000. Connie is borrowing PHP 26,000 in order to fund her business operations. This will be her 9th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 10,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Connie hopes to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
