A loan of $600 helped to purchase more fruit to sell.

Brigida's story

Brigida G. is 56 years old, married and lives in Bantayan municipality on Cebu island, one of the Visayas islands. She sells fruit. Brigida has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2000 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard selling fruit, she has gradually made her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of 15,000 PHP.

Brigida is borrowing 26,000 PHP, her 21st loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon, so that she can purchase more fruit to sell. Her previous loan of 26,000 PHP, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Brigida aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.
