A loan of $250 helped to buying and selling "nipa", woven palm mats used for house repair and construction.


Carolina's story

Carolina is a hardworking entrepreneur who has a business buying and selling "nipa," woven palm mats used for house repair and construction in the Philippines.

She is borrowing PHP 10,000 through NWTF to purchase additional nipa to sell. Carolina has been in this business for three years. She earns more income from farming rice and buying and selling rice.

She successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting a new loan to further build her "nipa", rice-sales and farming rice businesses.

Carolina has been sustaining her business activities through her own efforts with the help of loans from NWTF. She dreams of saving enough money so she could afford to send her children to college in the future.
