Edna is 42 years old and married with four children, three of whom are in school. Edna works very hard to provide for them.
Edna buys and sells nipa (woven palm mats used for house repair and construction) in the Philippines and requested a PHP 10,000 loan through NWTF to purchase additional palm mats to sell.
Edna has been in this business for two years.
In the future, Edna would like to save enough money so she can complete the education of her children and send them to college.
