As a married parent of six children, Elma works hard to support her family. She has a business buying and selling charcoal and firewood in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from direct selling Avon products, farming sugarcane and a general store. Elma is borrowing PHP 12,000 through NWTF to buy additional firewood and sacks of charcoal to sell for her business buying and selling charcoal and firewood.

She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
