A loan of $300 helped to buy additional materials for her weaving business.


Lope's story

As a married parent of four children, Lope works hard to support her family.

She has a abaca (plant fiber) weaving business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from her general store. Lope is borrowing PHP 12,000 through NWTF to buy additional materials for her weaving business.

Lope successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting a new loan to further build her abaca weaving business.

Lope has been sustaining her business activities through her past five loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money to expand her business still further.
