Melanie's story

Melanie is a married woman who lives in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. She earns her living by selling meat/dressed chicken and fish. Her husband Michael, who is 30 years old, works as a vendor to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have two children who are between 2 and 9 years old. Melanie joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 21 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Melanie has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 26,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 10,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 22nd loan, she is borrowing PHP 25,000 to buy more stocks to sell and raw materials for her new business (piggery) so that she can continue to save up for the future expansion of her businesses, to have her own lot and finish the studies of her children. Melanie is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
