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

A loan helped to build a sanitary toilet.

Minerva's story

Minerva works hard to support five children. She is single and has a fruit vending business in the Philippines.

Minerva requested a PHP 10000 loan through NWTF to invest in a SANITARY TOILET.

She is getting the sanitary toilet because she wants to give her family a clean and safe way of living.

Minerva is aware that by using the sanitary toilet, she is not only saving money, she is also helping the environment and reducing health risks and hazard to her family.
