Fernandita's story

Fernandita is 53 years old and married with five children, two of whom are in school. She works hard to provide for her family by running a general store in the Philippines. Fernandita requested a 20,000 PHP loan through NWTF to buy additional items to sell, such as soap, bread, milk, noodles, and canned goods.

Fernandita has borrowed and repaid 20 loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the general store for 5 years and also earns additional income from buying and selling fish. She aspires to save enough money to send her children to school.
