Annabelle's story

Annabelle is a married woman who lives in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a general store. Her husband Rico, who is 44 years old, works as a government employee to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have three children who are 8 to 20 years old. One of the children has his own family and the other two are currently going to school. Annabelle joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past six loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Annabelle has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 16,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 20,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her seventh loan, she is borrowing PHP 21,000 to pirchase more stock to sell so that she can continue to save up for her children's education and future family needs. Annabelle is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
