Marilyn's story

Marilyn is 41 years old and married with three children. She works very hard to provide for them.

Marilyn runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 18,000 loan through NWTF to buy more stocks of noodles, spices, sugar, soap, shampoo, etc. to sell.

Marilyn has been in this business for two years and sells a variety of items such as soap, sugar, can goods, soft drinks, etc.

In the future Marilyn would like to build and expand her business to secure the financial stability of her family.
