Luisa's story

Luisa is 41 years old and married, with 7 children. With 4 children in school, Luisa works very hard to provide for them.

She runs a sari-sari store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 12,000 loan through NWTF to buy additional items to sell, like sardines, groceries, etc. Luisa has been in this business for 6 years and sells a variety of items such as soap, shampoo, milk, curls, etc.

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