Violeta is a 61-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating three business ventures: a sari-sari store, food vending and raising livestock.
Violeta lives in Negros Occidental with her family. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 1996 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 40,000.
Violeta is borrowing PHP 22,500 to purchase more stock to sell in her general store. This will be her 19th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 19,500, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Violeta aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.
