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


A loan helped to build sanitary toilet.


Marita's story

Marita is married and has five children. She works hard to support them. She operates a general store in the Philippines.

Marita requested a loan from NWTF for 10,000 PHP, which she will use to buy a sanitary toilet. She is getting the sanitary toilet because she wants to give her family a clean and safe way of living. Marita is aware that by using the sanitary toilet, she is not only saving money, she is also helping the environment and reducing health and hazard risks to her family.
