Ma. Teresa's story

Ma. Teresa is married and works hard to support one child. She has a "buy-and-sell" personal beauty care business in the Philippines.

Ma. Teresa requested a PHP 8,400 loan through NWTF to build a sanitary toilet for her family.

Ma. Teresa is aware that by installing the sanitary toilet, she is reducing the risk of health hazards to her family and neighbors and is also promoting environment protection.
