Melanie's story

Melanie is 35 years old, married, and has three children. All of them are attending school.

Melanie is in the agricultural business, raising pigs in the Philippines. She has requested a PHP 29,500 loan through NWTF to buy medicines and vaccines for her pigs.

She has been raising pigs for 10 years now and has borrowed from NWTF eight times in the past to sustain her business.

In the future, Melanie would like to save enough money to continue sending her children to school.
