Rosie is a 38-year-old married woman who supports her family by operating a general store and a pig fattening business. She lives in Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. She has been a member of NWTF-Project Dungganon since 2002 and has improved her living conditions with the help of her loans from NWTF and through her own efforts. By working hard in her businesses, she is gradually making her family more economically stable. She now earns an average monthly income of PHP 6,000. Rosie is borrowing PHP 29,000 to buy feed for the pigs and stock for her store. This will be her 16th loan from NWTF-Project Dungganon. Her previous loan of PHP 29,000, which she paid off well within its term, was just another step in her journey toward economic freedom. Rosie aspires to elevate her family's living conditions and ensure their future wellbeing by following the Dungganon way.
