Antonia
Antonia is a 51-year-old widow who supports her family by operating a fishing/fish vending business. She lives in the island of Cebu.

Antonia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2000 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 19 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Antonia has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 15,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 7,000, uplifting the family's standard of living.

This time, for her 20th loan, she is borrowing PHP 15,000 to buy a new fishing boat so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children. Antonia is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
