A loan of $750 helped to purchase additional boxes of fish to sell.

Paterna's story

As a married parent of seven children, Paterna works hard to support her family.

She has a fish-vending business in the Philippines, and earns additional income from a general store and fishing. Paterna is borrowing PHP 30000 through NWTF to purchase additional boxes of fish to sell for her fish-vending business.

Paterna successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting a new loan to further build her fish vending, fishing and general store business.

Paterna has been sustaining her business activities through her past 29 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save money to expand her business.
