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

Emma's story

Emma works hard to support two children. She is married and has a business selling ready-to-wear products in the Philippines.

Emma has requested a loan of PHP 8,000 through NWTF to build a sanitary toilet for her family.

She is aware that, by using the sanitary toilet, she is both reducing health risks to her family & neighbors and also promoting environmental protection.
