Margarita's story

As a married parent of nine children Margarita works hard to support her family.

She has a dried fish business in the Philippines and also earns additional income from buying and selling shells. Margarita is borrowing PHP 15000 through NWTF to buy more fish for her dried fish making business.

Margarita has been sustaining her business activities through her past 23 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough to provide a secure future for her family.
