As a married mother of seven children, Ma. Emma works hard to support her family. She has a firewood sales business in the Philippines and earns additional income from trisikad and motorcycle transport.
Ma. Emma is borrowing 10,000 PHP through NWTF to buy more firewood to sell in the market. She has been sustaining her business activities using her previous three loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving money to expand her business.
