Margarita's story

Margarita is a 46-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating a food stall and a farming business. She lives in the municipality of Narra, Palawan. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2007 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her food stall and farming businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 8,600. Margarita is borrowing PHP 25,000 to fund her business operations. This will be her 16th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 16,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Margarita aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future well being by following the Dungganon way.
