Arcelita's story

Arcelita is a 54-year-old married who supports her family by selling frozen foods and meat. She lives in Narra, Palawan. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2006 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 8,000. Arcelita is borrowing PHP 10,000 to fund her frozen foods business. This will be her ninth loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 13,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Arcelita aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.
