Monico works hard to support eight children. He is married and has a business buying and selling tobacco in the Philippines.
Monico requested a PHP 4,100 loan through NWTF to buy a solar lamp. He is getting the solar lamp because he wants to provide his children with a bright light when they study at night.
Monico is aware that by using the solar lamp, he is not only saving money, he is also helping the environment and reducing his family's health and hazard risks.
