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


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


Rufina's story

Rufina works hard to support three children. She is married and has a pig-fattening business in the Philippines.

Rufina requested a PHP 5,000 loan through NWTF to pay for materials and labor to construct a sanitary toilet for her family.

Rufina is aware that by using the sanitary toilet, she is reducing health risks and other hazards to her family and neighbors as well as promoting environmental protection.
