Helen's story

As a married mother of four children, Helen works hard to support her family.

She has a barquillos-making business in the Philippines and earns additional income from making ice cream. Helen is borrowing PHP 15,000 through NWTF to buy flour, oil, sugar and other ingredients for making barquillos (a type of cookie).

Helen has been sustaining her business activities through her past 22 loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of building and expanding her business to secure the future of her family.
