Elsie is 34 years old and married with one child who is in school. She runs a general store in the Philippines and works very hard to provide for her family. She has been in this business for four years and sells a variety of items, such as shampoo, detergent, diapers, and other miscellaneous items. Elsie has requested a loan of 20,000 Philippine Pesos (PHP) through NWTF to purchase more groceries to sell.
In the future, Elsie would like to save enough money to expand her business.
