Alicia's story

Alicia, a widow, works hard to support her family. She has a clothes tailoring business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income from upholstery and food vending businesses. Alicia is borrowing PHP 18,000 through NWTF to buy raw materials for her tailoring business. Alicia has been sustaining her business activities through her past 18 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 build and expand her business.
