A loan of $450 helped to buy cloth and other dressmaking materials for her business.


Alma's story

As a married mother of seven children, Alma works hard to support her family.

She has a tailoring business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from a general store and pig fattening. Alma is borrowing 19,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) through NWTF to buy cloth and other dressmaking materials for her business.

Alma has been sustaining her business activities through her past 13 loans from NWTF, and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money to expand her business.
