As a married mother of eleven children, Herminia works hard to support her family.
She has a 'bibingka' (rice cakes) business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from selling fermented fish ('guinamos'). Herminia is borrowing PHP 15,000 through NWTF to buy ingredients for her 'bibingka' business.
Herminia has been sustaining her business activities through her past seven loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream: to save enough to provide a secure future for her family.
