Emma's story

As a married parent of four children, Emma works hard to support her family. She has a buy and sell spice pack business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from food vending. Emma is requesting a PHP 20,000 loan through NWTF to buy additional spices for re-sale. Emma has been sustaining her business activities through her past seven loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving enough money to send her children to college.
