Lucy is 53 years old, married, and has three children, one of whom is in school. She works very hard to provide for them. She runs a general store in the Philippines. Lucy has been in this business for three years and sells items such as basic groceries and toiletries.
She requested a PHP 27,500 loan through NWTF. She will use the loan to purchase additional stock to resell at her store, like soap, shampoo, canned goods, and noodles. In the future Lucy would like to save money to expand her business.
