As a married parent of 6 children, Leonida works hard to support her family.
She buys and sells bananas in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from raising livestock. Leonida is borrowing PHP 17,000 through NWTF to purchase more bananas to sell.
Leonida has been sustaining her business activities through her past 7 loans from NWTF, all of which she has repaid. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college and expand her business.
