A loan helped to buy more fresh fish to sell and other materials needed, including plastic bags and boxes for her fish.


Emma's story

Emma, 46 years old, is married and has ten children, six of them in school. She works very hard to provide for them. For the past thirty years, Emma has run a fish vending business in the Philippines.

Emma has requested a PHP 30,000 loan through NWTF to buy more fresh fish to sell and other materials needed, including plastic bags and boxes for her fish. In the future, she would like to save enough money to afford to send her children to college.
