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


A loan helped to build a sanitary toilet.


Carmela's story

Carmela works hard to support her family. She is married and has a general store business in the Philippines.

Carmela has requested a PHP 10,000 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.

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