Jessa is 34 years old and married with four children, three of whom currently attend school. Jessa works very hard to provide for them. Jessa runs a business selling nipa (woven palm mats) used for house repair and construction in the Philippines and requested a PHP 9,000 loan through NWTF to buy additional nipa to sell. Jessa has been in this business for 10 years.
In the future Jessa would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
