Chita works hard to provide for her family. She runs a business buying and selling nipa (woven palm mats used for house repair and construction) in the Philippines. She has requested a PHP 29,500 loan through NWTF to buy additional stock to sell.
Chita has borrowed and paid 14 loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the nipa sales business for three years and also earns an income from a general store.
Chita aspires to save money to expand her business.
