With the help of her past 15 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Catalina has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 25,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 10,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 16th loan, she is borrowing PHP 25,000 to purchase spare parts, materials and supplies that her crew needs to repair the vehicles. She is working hard so that she can continue to save up for future expansion of the business and to purchase land for their house.
