As a married parent of two children, Merliza works hard to support her family.
She has a cashew seed vending business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from raising pigs. Merliza is borrowing PHP 13,000 through NWTF to purchase additional sacks of cashew seeds to sell in her cashew seed vending business.
Merliza has been sustaining her business activities through her past 5 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so that she could afford to send her children to college.
