As a married parent of four children, Maritess works hard to support her family. She has a soft drink retail business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from raising pigs and buying and selling recycled materials.
Maritess is borrowing PHP 24,000 through NWTF to purchase more stocks of soft drinks to sell for her soft drink retail business.
Maritess has been sustaining her business activities through her past 14 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save money to expand her business.
