Joan's story

As a married mother of three children, Joan works hard to support her family. She has a fish vending business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income by selling ready-to-wear clothing and bananas. Joan is borrowing PHP 12,000 through NWTF. She will use the loan in order to buy more fish to sell to customers. Joan has been sustaining her business activities through her past five loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream, to save money for expanding her business.
