As a widowed parent of 6 children, Mercedita works hard to support her family.
She has a general store business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from farming sugar cane. Mercedita is borrowing PHP 10000 through NWTF to purchase additional stocks to sell such as sugar, soap, egg, noodles, canned goods, etc., at her general store business.
Mercedita has been sustaining her business activities through her past 4 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
