Ludivina's story

Ludivina is a married woman with six children. She is a very hard-working entrepreneur of 43 years who has four children who are in school.

Her fishing business in the Philippines could use some assistance. Ludivina requested a PHP 30,000 loan amount through NWTF to buy a new fish net, rope, gasoline and other materials for fishing.

Ludivina has been in this business for 25 years. In the future, she would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
