Anselma's story

Anselma is a 47-year-old widow who supports her family by operating two business ventures: buying and selling ready-to-wear clothes/pants and fish vending. She lives in the municipality of Medellin, Cebu. Anselma joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2008 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past four loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Anselma has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 9,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 4,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her fifth loan, she is borrowing PHP 10,000 to buy fish & stocks of clothes/pants to sell so that she can continue to save up for the education of her children. Anselma 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.
