Virgilia's story

Virgilia is a 50-year-old married mother of five children, two of whom are in school. She works very hard to provide for them, having operated a general store in the Philippines for 12 years now.



Selling a variety of items such as soap, sugar and other groceries, Virgilia has requested a PHP 12000 loan through NWTF to purchase more goods to sell. In the future, Virgilia would like to save enough money to expand her business.
