She is taking out a PHP 10,000 housing loan through NWTF to purchase building materials and pay for construction labor to build her a house for her family. Dorica has been with NWTF since 2012 in her effort to rise out of poverty. With your help, she will be able to start once more in a new home. In the future, she would like to save enough money to expand her business.
