As a married parent of five children, Meliza works hard to support her family. She has a motorcycle transport business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income from her vulcanizing shop and from farming rice. Meliza is borrowing PHP 40,000 through NWTF to buy spare parts for the maintenance of her motorcycle and materials for her vulcanizing shop. Meliza has sustained her business activities with her past ten loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money to send her children to college and expand her business.
