Leonesa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy items to sell in her store like canned goods and personal care products.

Leonesa's story

Leonesa is 54 years old and married with three children. One of her children is still in school. She works very hard to provide for her family.

Leonesa runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 15000 loan through NWTF to buy items to sell like canned goods and personal care products.

Leonesa has been in this business for five years and sells a variety of items.

In the future Leonesa would like to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
