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


Arlene's story

Arlene is a hardworking micro-entrepreneur. She is married and has a vegetable vending business in the Philippines.

She requested a PHP 5,000 loan through NWTF to invest in a sanitary toilet.

She knows that using the sanitary toilet will ultimately reduce health and hazard risks to her family.
