A loan of $700 helped to fund her business operations.


Luciana's story

Luciana is a 57-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating six business ventures: a sari-sari (general) store, dry goods, mineral water refill, buying & selling wood, electronic re-loading and room-for-rent businesses. She lives in Lapu-Lapu City, 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 six businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 27,000. Luciana is borrowing PHP 29,500 to fund her business operations. This will be her 13th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 29,500, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Luciana aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.
