For the past year Lilia, a 70-year-old married mother of 14, has been operating a fruit-vending business in the Philippines. The recipient of 19 previous loans from NWTF, she has requested a new one for PHP 16000 to buy more stocks of fruits to sell.
In the future, Lilia would like to build and expand her business to secure the financial stability of her family.
