Naomi is a married woman who lives in Toledo City, Cebu. She earns her living by operating two business ventures: pig fattening and poultry. Her husband Homer, who is 40 years old, works as an Operator (OFW) to earn his living. They have four children who are between 9 and 19 years old. Naomi joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2002 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 13 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Naomi has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 17,000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 11,400, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 14th loan, she is borrowing PHP 15,000 to buy piglets so that she can continue to save up for the future education of her children and house repairs. Naomi is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
