Wilma's story

Wilma is a married woman with two children. She is a very hard-working entrepreneur. Wilma is 45 years old and has two children who are in school.

Wilma has a "buy and sell scrap" business in the Philippines. Wilma requested a PHP 10,000 loan amount through NWTF to purchase more scrap to sell.

She successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting a new loan to further build her business.

Wilma has been in this business for three years. Wilma would like to save enough to provide a secure future for her family.
