Marivic's story

Marivic is a married woman who lives in the municipality of Sta. Fe, Cebu. She earns her living by operating a ready-to-wear clothes/pants business. Her husband Evante, who is 33 years old, works as a fisherman to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have three children who are between 4 and 9 years old. Marivic joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2004 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 17 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Marivic has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 25,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 10,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 18th loan, she is borrowing PHP 25,000 to buy more stock so that she can continue to save up for the future higher education of her children. Marivic is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
