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


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


Maria's story

Maria works hard to support one child. She is married and has a farming business in the Philippines.

Maria requested a 6,000 PHP loan through NWTF to build a sanitary toilet for her family. She is aware that by using the sanitary toilet, she is reducing health hazard risks to her family and neighbors, as well as promoting protection of the environment.
