A loan of $525 helped to buy fishing materials for her business.


Francia's story

As a married parent of three children, Francia works hard to support her family. She has a fishing business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income by keeping a general store and raising pigs.

Francia is borrowing PHP 22,000 through NWTF. She will use the loan to buy fishing materials for her fishing business.

She successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting an additional loan to build her fishing, general store and pig raising businesses. Francia has been sustaining her business activities through her past 20 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream -- to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to school.
