Romeo is 64 years old and married with 9 children. He works very hard to provide for them.
Romeo runs a buying and selling nipa business (woven palm mats used for house repair and construction) in the Philippines and requested a PHP 15000 loan through NWTF to buy additional nipa to sell for his business.
Romeo has been in this business for 20 years.
In the future Romeo would like to save money so expand his business.
