As a married parent of five children, Joanne works hard to support her family.
She has a rice mill business in the Philippines, and she also earns additional income from buying and selling rice and corn and raising pigs.
Joanne is borrowing PHP 29,500 through NWTF to pay for the laborers' salaries of her rice mill business.
Joanne has been sustaining her business activities through her past 16 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
