Leonila's story

As a married mother of seven children, Leonila works hard to support her family.

She has a general store business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from food vending. Leonila is borrowing PHP 20,000 through NWTF to purchase more grocery items to sell like snack foods, canned goods, and other miscellaneous items for her general store business.

Leonila has been sustaining her business activities through her past 14 loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money to expand her business and continue to send her children to school.
