Gloria's story

Gloria is a married woman who lives in Cauayan, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by venturing into several businesses: running a general store, buying and selling rice and charcoal. Her husband Pablo, who is 62 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have three children who are 13 to 26 years old. Gloria joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 1994 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 20 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Gloria has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 20,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 5,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 21st loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000 to fund her business operations so that she can continue to save up for the college education of her children. It is Gloria's dream that her children graduate from college. Gloria 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 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 upon a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
