Lourlyn's story

Lourlyn is 43 years old and married with two children, one currently in school. Lourlyn works very hard to provide for them by running a general store in the Philippines. She has been in this business for 5 years. She requested a 30,000 PHP loan through NWTF to purchase items to sell, such as shampoo, milk, sugar, oil and other groceries. In the future Lourlyn would like to save money to expand her business.
