A loan of $350 helped to fund her vegetable farm.


Juanita's story

Juanita is a married woman who lives in Valladolid, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a vegetable farming and vending business. Her husband Samuel, who is 45 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living. They have two children who are 23 and 25 years old. Juanita joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2006 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past seven loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Juanita has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 15,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 15,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her eighth loan, she is borrowing PHP 15,000 to fund her vegetable farming business so that she can continue to save up for future house repair and house improvement. Juanita is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams. About NWTF: In a world full of challenges, Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF) is making a difference in the lives of thousands of women through Project Dungganon (a Hiligaynon word that means Honorable). Through the alleviation program, NWTF is empowering these women to progress from earning less than $1 a day to achieving realities that surpass even their dreams. They have taken a life path that will ultimately make them Dungganon - a title of esteem that is bestowed upon a member of a community who has earned the respect through a lifetime of hard and honest work.
