Emilia's story

Emilia works hard to support her family.

She has a trisikad (pedicab) transport business in the Philippines. Emilia is borrowing PHP 24000 through NWTF to buy an additional trisikad.

Emilia has been sustaining her business activities through her past 14 loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money to expand her business.
