Evangeline is 53 years old, married, and has eight children, three of whom are in school. Evangeline works very hard to provide for them. She buys and sells charcoal in the Philippines, a business she has been in for 10 years.
She has requested a PHP 20,000 loan through NWTF to purchase additional sacks of charcoal to sell.
Evangeline would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college in the future.
