Gemma's story

Gemma is 43 years old. She is married and supports her family by operating 2 business ventures: a fishing/fish vending business and a pig fattening business. She lives in Basay, Negros Oriental.

Gemma has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2007 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 8000.

Gemma is borrowing PHP 28000 so that she can fund her business operations. This will be her 7th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 20000, which she paid off well within its term was just another step on her journey toward economic freedom. Gemma aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
