A loan of $400 helped to buy fruits and vegetables to sell.

Lilia's story

Lilia is a married woman who lives in the island Palawan. She earns her living by selling fruits and vegetables. Her husband Cresencio, who is 56 years old, works as a farmer to earn his living and helps in his wife's business activities. They have eight children who are between 10 and 31 years old.

Lilia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Lilia has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 14,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 9,000, uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her eighth loan, she is borrowing PHP 17,000, which she intends to use as additional capital for selling fruits and vegetables so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children. Lilia is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
