A loan of $325 helped to buy fishing nets, paints and other equipment to repair her fishing boat.


Tomasa's story

As a married mother of 9 children, Tomasa works hard to support her family.

She has a fishing business in the Philippines. Tomasa is borrowing PHP 13000 through NWTF to buy fishing nets, paints and other equipment to repair her fishing boat.

Tomasa has been sustaining her business activities through her past 6 loans from NWTF and, more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she can continue to send her children to college.
