Melita's story

Melita is 64 years old and widowed with four children. She works very hard to provide for them.

She runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 10,000 loan through NWTF to buy items to sell like canned goods, soap, milk, soft drinks, etc.

Melita has been in this business for 4 years.

She would like to save enough to provide a secure future for her family.
