Cecilia's story

Cecilia is a married woman who lives in Victorias, Negros Occidental. She earns her living by operating a fishing/fish vending business. Her husband Francisco, who is 57 years old, works as a fisherman to earn his living. They have four children who are between 12 and 26 years old. Cecilia joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2003 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 10 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Cecilia has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 19,500 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 4,500, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 11th loan, she is borrowing PHP 22,000 to purchase a fishing boat so that she can continue to save up for the future, to improve business and for her children's education. Cecilia is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
