Marcosa's story

Marcosa is 41 years old, married and has five children. With three children currently in school, Marcosa works very hard to provide for them.

Marcosa runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a 17,000 PHP loan through NWTF to buy additional stock to sell in her general store.

Marcosa has been in this business for 5 years and sells a variety of items such as laundry soap, biscuits, candies, noodles, sugar, etc.

In the future, Marcosa would like to save enough money to expand her business.
