Letty's story

Letty is a 57-year-old widow who supports her family by operating two business ventures: rice selling and buying and selling charcoal. She lives in Narra, Palawan. Letty joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2004 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 14 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Letty 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 10,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 15th loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000 to buy additional rice so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children and for house improvements. Letty is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
