Mercy's story

Mercy is 47 years old. She is married and has two children.

She runs a general store in the Philippines. She requested a loan of 27,000 PHP through NWTF to buy items to sell, such as canned goods, personal care products, sugar, soap, and snack foods.

She successfully repaid her previous loan, and now she has requested another loan to further build her businesses. Mercy has been in this business for 17 years. In the future she would like to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
