Sofia's story

As a married parent of five children, Sofia works hard to support her family.

She has a tailoring business in the Philippines, and earns additional income from a buy-and-sell ready to wear. Sofia is borrowing PHP 21,000 through NWTF to buy materials, such as cloths, needles, and other materials, for her tailoring business.

Sofia has been sustaining her business activities through her past 21 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save money to expand her business.
