Merlinda's story

As a married parent of seven children, Merlinda works hard to support her family.

She has a fishing business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from a variety store and from raising livestock. Merlinda is borrowing PHP 20000 through NWTF to buy fishing gear and to repair her fishing boat.

Merlinda has been sustaining her business activities through her past 17 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her to attain her dream of saving enough money to buy additional fishing boats.
