Zenaida makes and sells crab nets. She is a hard-working entrepreneur and has been in this business for 20 years. She earns an additional income from ready-to-wear (second-hand) clothing sales.
She has requested a loan in the amount of PHP 23,000 through NWTF in order to purchase bamboo for making crab nets as well as to buy ready-to-wear clothing to offer for sale.
Zenaida has been sustaining her business activities through her own efforts with the help of loans from NWTF. She dreams of saving enough money to expand her business in the future.
