Emma's story

Emma is a 37-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating a sari-sari (general) store. She lives in Bago City, Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2009 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her sari-sari store, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 5,000.

Emma is borrowing PHP 9,000 so that she can purchase more inventory to sell. This will be her fourth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 7,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Emma aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.

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 the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these 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 to a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
