As a married parent of two, Ligaya works hard to support her family. She has a motorcycle transport business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income from a general store and from raising pigs and chickens. Ligaya is borrowing PHP 11,000 through NWTF to buy iron, paint, and other materials for the repair of the motorcycle she uses in her transport business. Ligaya has been maintaining her business with her past three loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
