As a married parent of eight children, Carmen works hard to support her family.
She has a business buying and selling rice in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from her general store. Carmen is borrowing PHP 20,000 through NWTF to buy additional sacks of rice to sell for her rice business.
Carmen has been sustaining her business activities through her past 28 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
