Emelia's story

Emelia is 60 years old and married with two children.

Emelia works hard to provide for her family. She runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a 15,000 PHP loan through NWTF to purchase additional items to sell, such as canned goods, spices, eggs, noodles, etc.

Emelia has borrowed and repaid 7 loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the general store for 5 years and also earns an income from the sale of charcoal.

Emelia aspires to save enough money so that she can afford to send her children to college.
