Agusta's story

Agusta is married and she works hard to support her family.

She has a general store business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from shell-crafting. Agusta is borrowing PHP 10,000 through NWTF to purchase more items to sell in her general store business.

Agusta has been sustaining her business activities through her past five loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream: to save money to expand her business.
