A loan of $650 helped to purchase a new fishing boat.


Remy's story

Remy is a married woman who lives in Bataraza, Palawan. She earns her living by operating fish vending and fishing businesses. Her husband Jory, who is 49 years old, works as a fisherman to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have nine children who are between 1 and 28 years old. Remy joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2004 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 13 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Remy has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 29,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 27,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 14th loan, she is borrowing PHP 28,000 to buy a new fishing boat so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children. Remy is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
