Aida's story

Aida is a 57-year-old widow who supports her family by operating two business ventures: poultry and dry goods (fashion earrings).

She lives in Bayawan City, Negros Oriental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1999 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts.

By working hard in her poultry and dry goods (fashion earrings) businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 12,000.

Aida is borrowing PHP 15,000 so that she can purchase more stock to sell. This will be her 15th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 15,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom.

Aida aspires to improve her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
