Roselie, 39 years old, is married and has 2 children who are in school. Roselie works very hard to provide for them. For the past 4 years, Roselie has operated a business buying and selling nipa (woven palm mats used for house repair and construction) in the Philippines. She has requested a PHP 12,000 loan through NWTF to buy more stocks of nipa to sell. In the future, Roselie would like to save enough money to afford to send her children to college.
