Alicia is a hard-working entrepreneur who operates a fishing business in the Philippines. She has been in this business for 36 years. She earns an additional income from buying and selling fermented shrimp.

Alicia has been sustaining her business activities through her own efforts with the help of the loans from NWTF. She has successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting a new loan in order to further build her fishing venture.
