As a widowed parent of three children, Arcely works hard to support her family. She has a general store in the Philippines, and she also earns additional income from renting rooms in a boarding house. Arcely is borrowing PHP 29,500 through NWTF to buy items to sell in her store, such as bottles of mineral water, cola drinks, bread, eggs, yoghurt and other groceries. Arcely has been maintaining her business activities with her past 22 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of building and expanding her business to secure the future of her family.
