A loan of $375 helped to purchase additional sacks of charcoal to sell.


Erlinda's story

Erlinda is 56 years old and married with four children. She works hard to provide for her family. She runs a buy-and-sell charcoal business in the Philippines and she has requested a PHP 15,000 loan through NWTF to purchase additional sacks of charcoal to sell.

She has borrowed and paid back 13 loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the charcoal business for 7 years and also earns an income from buying and selling "nipa" (woven palm mats used for house repair and construction).

Erlinda aspires to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
