Elsa's story

Elsa is a married woman who lives in Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a furniture shop, a general store and a cafeteria. Her husband Egmedio, who is 68 years old, works as a welder to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have eight children who are between 29 and 39 years old.

Elsa joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2001 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past nine loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Elsa has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 16,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 10,000, uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 10th loan, she is borrowing PHP 16,000 to buy materials for her furniture-making business. Elsa is working hard so that she can continue to save up for the future expansion of the business. Elsa is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
