Nenita is a 50-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating three business ventures: a general store, a Chicken Joy and other food vending business and a frozen foods business. She lives in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental. 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 three businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 6,000. Nenita is borrowing PHP 10,000 to fund her business operations. This will be her 14th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 6,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Nenita aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.
