Maura's story

Maura is a 53-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating a fishing business and a fish vending business. She lives in Bantayan, Cebu. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2002 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her fishing and fish vending businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 8,000. Maura is borrowing PHP 19,500 to purchase fishing gears and equipment. This will be her 14th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 13,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Maura aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well-being by following the Dungganon way.
