Merly is 52 years old and married with two children, one of whom is in school. Merly works very hard to provide for them. Merly runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a 20,000 Philippine peso loan through Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF) in order to purchase more groceries to sell. Merly has been in her business for ten years and sells a variety of items such as sugar, soap and other groceries. In the future, Merly would like to save enough money to expand her business and repair her family's home.
