Lydia's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to build a sanitary toilet for her family.

Lydia's story

Lydia works hard to support six children. She is married and has a shell crafting business in the Philippines.

Lydia requested a PHP 5,400 loan through NWTF to invest in a sanitary toilet. Lydia is aware that by using the sanitary toilet, she is not only saving money, but also helping the environment and reducing health hazard risks to her family.
