As a married parent of 12 children, Ma. Fe works hard to support her family. She has a lumberyard business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from sugarcane farming. Ma. Fe is requesting to borrow 20,000 PHP through Kiva partner, NWTF, to purchase a chainsaw to be used in her lumberyard business.
Ma. Fe has been sustaining her business activities through her past ten loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she is able to send her children to college.
