As a widowed mother of five children, Selma works hard to support her family. She has a welding shop in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from her general store. Selma is borrowing PHP 25,000 through NWTF to buy tools and equipment for her welding machine.
Selma has been sustaining her business activities through her past eight loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream: to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family.
