This loan is part of NWTF’s higher education program, designed to serve students who otherwise would not be able to attend college. Under the program, children of existing NWTF microfinance clients are able to take a loan to support their college education or technical/vocational training. Following graduation, the student may have better opportunities that ultimately benefit the entire family. NWTF has designed this loan product to have a lower interest rate than typical microfinance loans.
