Neria's story

Neria is a 47-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating two business ventures: hog raising and a manicure/pedicure/weaving business. She lives in Bantayan, Cebu. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2004 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 8,000. Neria is borrowing PHP 29,000 to fund the operations of her businesses. This will be her 15th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 23,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Neria aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.
