A loan helped to buy items like canned goods, personal care products, etc., to sell in her store.


Vicente's story

Vicente is 40 years old and married, with four children. With two children still in school, she works very hard to provide for them.

She runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 20,000 loan through NWTF to buy items like canned goods, personal care products, etc., to sell in her store.

She has been in this business for five years and sells a variety of items.

In the future Vicente would like to repair and renovate her family home.
