A loan of $325 helped to fund her business operations.

Judith's story

Judith E. is a married woman who lives in Purok 4, Brgy. Tuyom, Cauayan, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating three business ventures: a general store, a rice mill and a sugarcane plantation.

Her husband, Lauro, who is 51 years old, manages the sugarcane field to earn his living and also helps in his wife's business activities.

They have two children who are 19 and 23 years old.

Judith joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2009 because she aspired to something better for her family. With the help of her past three loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Judith has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 8,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 15,000, uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her fourth loan, she is borrowing PHP 14,000, which she intends to use as funds in her business operations so that she can continue to save up for future household and family expenses.

Judith E. is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
