Rosemarie's story

Rosemarie is a 58-year-old widow who supports her family by operating a tricycle transport business and a livestock business. She lives in the municipality of Aborlan, Palawan. Rosemarie joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past seven loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Rosemarie has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 17,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 15,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her eighth loan, she is borrowing PHP 20,000 to buy an additional sidecar for her new motorcycle so that she can continue to save up for future expansion of her business. Rosemarie is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
