Avelina's story

Avelina is a married woman who lives in the island of Cebu. She earns her living by buying and selling herbal products. Her husband Vicente, who is 57 years old, works as a driver to earn his living. They have three children who are between 21 and 33 years old.

Avelina joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2008 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past four loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Avelina has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 9,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 6800, uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her fifth loan, she is borrowing PHP 12,000 to buy herbal products to sell to customers so that she can continue to save up for future family needs. Avelina is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
