Mary Joy's story

Mary Joy is 34 years old and single with two children.

She works hard to provide for her family. She runs a pawid (a type of palm used for making thatched roofs) retailing business in the Philippines and requested a PHP 5,000 loan through NWTF to buy additional pawid to sell for her business.

She aspires to save money to expand her business.
