Juliana's story

Juliana is a married woman who lives in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. She earns her living by operating a general store. Her husband Francisco, who is 63 years old, works as a carpenter to earn his living and helps with his wife’s business activities. They have six children who are between 27 to 43 years old. Juliana joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2004 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 15 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Juliana has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. This time, for her sixteenth loan, Juliana is borrowing 15,000 PHP to buy product items for her store and to save for the future. Juliana is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams. About NWTF: In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF) is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means honorable). Through its alleviation program, NWTF is empowering women to progress from earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed on a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
