Marivic is 40 years old and married, with four children.
Marivic works hard to provide for her family. She runs a general store in the Philippines and has requested a PHP 14,000 loan through Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (NWTF) to purchase items to sell, like sugar, bread, soap, shampoo, and canned goods.
Marivic has borrowed and paid three loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the general store for five years and also earns an income from vegetables-vending. Marivic aspires to save enough money, so she could afford to send her children to college.
