Armelita's story

Armelita is a married woman who lives in the island of Palawan. She earns her living by operating a palm oil farm and a sand & gravel quarry. Her husband Renato, who is 47 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have two children who are 28 and 29 years old. Armelita joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2005 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 18 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Armelita has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 29,500 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 20,000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 19th loan, she is borrowing PHP 29,500 to fund her palm oil farming operation so that she can continue to save up for the future expansion of her business. Armelita is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
