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


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


Melanie's story

Melanie works hard to support two children. She is married and has a general store business in the Philippines.

She requested a PHP 10,000 loan through NWTF to invest in a SANITARY TOILET.

Melanie 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.
