Carmelita's story

Carmelita is 37 years old and has three children. She is married and all three of her children are currently in school.

Carmelita is in the agricultural pig fattening business in the Philippines. She requested a PHP 15,000 loan through NWTF to buy feed and other supplies to raise her pig. She has been sustaining her business activities through her past loans from NWTF.

Carmelita hopes her hard work will help attain her dream to save enough to build a house for her family.
