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

A loan helped to buy additional stocks of household goods to sell.

Elena's story

Elena is 37 years old and married. With one child in school, Elena 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 additional stocks of household goods to sell.

Elena has been in this business for 4 years.

In the future Elena would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
